Highway Deaths Down This Year

Officials from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration say there were 31,110 auto fatalities in the first 10 months of this year, an almost 10 percent decline over the same period in 2007. If the trend continues for the last two months of the year, highway deaths would reach their lowest level since Lyndon Johnson was president. Article here. One wonders if the drop in deaths is attributable to high gas prices/less driving.
