Good news, bad news

Both the Independent and the Guardian have good news on motoring.

The Indy reports :
The credit crunch and the rising cost of running a car has caused traffic on Britain's major roads to drop for the first time since congestion was measured, a report has revealed.
While the Guardian says that "Highways in the US are at their safest since the 1960s as the rocketing price of petrol puts a strain on America's love affair with fast cars."
Lon Anderson, a spokesman for the AAA motoring organisation, said high fuel prices had caused US drivers to travel 58 billion fewer miles in the first seven months of this year.
Wow! The sad thought that I keep coming back to is that someone else, somewhere in the world, is using the same oil that British and American drivers are foregoing...
