When I wrote the driving update for Dez earlier this month, I already knew that I'd post another one for Pearl this month, too. Yesterday, I said that the next entry would be that driving update. So, here it is.
Pearl rolled over 23,000 miles on
Of course, the important statistic isn't how much I drive my car; it's how much my wife and I drive our cars. Adding Dez's 9.71 miles/day and 296.1 miles/standard month to my driving results in totals of 26.95 miles/day and 822.0 miles/month. That's better than the 1000 total miles per month we were driving our cars in April, a statistic I did not use for a new baseline because of pair of one-time trips to Flint and Mount Pleasant. Even so, it's more than the cumulative average of 22.52 miles/day and 686.86 miles/month from January 2015's update and much more than the previous cumulative update on December 28, 2013. My wife and I are definitely adding to the trend of increasing miles driven since gas prices fell last year. At least I drive a high-mileage car!
Stay tuned for a post about Food, Inc. starring John Oliver for Food Day.
