Sadly, it doesn't appear to be the case. Traffic has been trending down for years, and recent months/weeks show no change in the pattern.

Just the hardcore efficiency nerds hanging around here now (and some nerds returning - hi, War_Wagon!).

It's been ages since we had someone new sign up to say, "Help - I commute 90 miles a day in my pickup truck and need to save money! What can I do??"

On the other hand, if the mainstream media start running "Gas is so expensive!" stories, it may drive interest. We'll see...
