It's cheaper to fill up your car's gas tank now than it was a year ago, but U.S. motorists drove about 9 billion fewer miles in October than they did in the same month a year ago, according to federal data collected from 4,000 automated traffic recorders on highways and other main arteries. It's the largest continuous decline in driving ever.
