Daily vehicle miles traveled in US varies with the number of household vehicles

In a one-vehicle household the average daily mileage is about 30 miles, to the US Department of Transportation (DOT) 2017 National Household Travel Survey.

In a two-vehicle household, the first vehicle averages nearly 40 miles in a day; in a three-vehicle household, the first vehicle averages over 40 miles per day. This trend continues and the average daily miles of the first vehicle in a six-vehicle household is about 50 miles a day. Daily miles for the second vehicle in each of these categories is 50-55% that of the first vehicle.
