Vehicle Miles Saved Counter
Making a difference... one trip at a time.
Thousands of Oregonians from up and down the Willamette Valley, along the coast and living in Central and Eastern Oregon helped make this year’s Oregon Drive Less Challenge a success. A total of 777,119 miles in bike, bus, train, carpool, vanpool and walking trips, plus teleworking were reported in just 14 days—especially notable since gas prices were down nearly 34% from last year (prices even dipped as low as $1.99 a gallon). Even at lower gas prices, participants still saved over $84,000* at the pump alone. Plus, if these miles were driven-alone, then they would have resulted in a whopping 548,457 pounds of CO2 emissions.
THANK YOU for being a part of this year’s Oregon Drive Less Challenge and helping to show how Oregonians can collectively make a difference!
*Note: Gas savings were estimated using the Fuel Cost Calculator, a third-party online tool. AAA’s reported state average gas price of $2.38 per gallon at the start of the challenge (Oct. 5), in addition a 22 miles per gallon fuel consumption rate were used in the calculation.
