Over 50s have reduced their average mileage by a fifth since 2006
• A third of over 50s have cut back on their motoring spend
• People walk, use buses and shop around for fuel to reduce the cost of running a car
• Women are the most likely to cut back on motoring costs
Research by Saga Car Insurance shows a third of over 50s have tried to reduce motoring costs* – including driving less. People have reduced their average annual mileage by a fifth since the credit crunch started**, as the average over 50 now drives around 5,389 miles a year, down from 6,561, seven years ago. More

There are twofactors not mentioned in this report.

1) The introduction of the 'free' bus pass.

2) The extortionate rise in (not only) inner city parking. Parking has become a very lucrative 'fund raiser' for many councils. This can be offset a little, when one knows where to park. This link should help. Check it out if you are driving in Europe too.
