Cautious San Diego residents are still driving less than they were at this time last year, despite the nose-dive in fuel prices. They’re also driving less than they did when prices peaked in early summer, the North County Times reported.
Traffic volume on Interstates 5 and 15, and Highway 78 was down 4 percent to 8 percent last week from the week before Thanksgiving 2007, according to a statewide database.
At the same time, the Automobile Club of Southern California expected the number of cars to hit the road across the region over the long holiday weekend to total 2 percent less than last year, the paper reported.
