how much do you drive?

Was wondering how often everyone drives around here.

As for me, I've been driving my car since April 01 of last year, and have driven 26,800mi so far. I think I'm on par to hit 28,000/yr.

I will hit around 13k miles this year; but life is changing and next year should be far, far fewer. By June, I will be within walking distance of my job, and I won't be driving 20 miles to see my girlfriend anymore. I will also be closer to my gym buddy, so neither of us will be driving 10 miles to the gym any more.
Yes, I know, inefficient American. Sue me.

70 thousand miles in 3 years on the main car and likely another 5 on a few others. One time I was driving 300 miles a day.

Current car was "born" (i.e. registered) in Feb 2011, and bought by me (with 16 miles on it) in June of that year. In about 18 months I have 15.5K on the clock which is surprising as I don't drive very far.

Calculating a miles / year thats about 9K - I think.
