REGIONAL AND SEASONAL TRENDS IN FUEL ECONOMY AND TRAVEL

The J.D. Power survey of new vehicle owners and the NFO fuel purchase diary panel are used to detail how vehicle fleets differ across the nation. An analysis of whether use patters and fuel economy of new vehicle vary regionally is presented. The regional and seasonal matrices of vehicle miles travelled (VMT) and fuel economy for the regional fleets found in the NFO panel are summarized. A preliminary analysis of fuel switching rates is presented based on tentative identifications of the fuel type required in the NFO vehicle sample.
