Apparently the average registered driver in the USA drives 14,425 miles per year.

My wife and I are both employed full time. We drive to work daily and head to the mountains or beach frequently. Looking at my vehicle logs for 2017:

Spark: 8600 miles
Prius: 8195 miles
Astro: 1692 miles
Total: 18487 miles or 9244 miles each

She is 5 miles from work and I'm 21 miles. My commute takes 50 minutes each way her's is about 10 minutes.

I have a 7 mile commute for work. I put about 5k miles per year on the car I drive. This is intentional. As much as I enjoy tinkering with them, I don't want to live my life in a car.
