Americans are on track to set a record for the most annual miles driven in the past seven years, according to the U.S. Department of Transportation.
Its latest report estimates U.S. drivers clocked 241 billion vehicle miles in November 2014, bringing the 11-month total for the year to 2.76 trillion miles.
If December numbers are high enough, the total could top 3 trillion vehicle miles and break a record set in 2007 when Americans drove a combined 3.03 trillion miles.
