U.S. drivers log 2.5% more miles in April than year ago

NEW YORK, June 20 (Reuters) - Motorists traveled 2.5% more miles on U.S. roads and highways in April compared with a year earlier, the U.S. Department of Transportation said in a monthly report late Thursday.

Drivers logged an estimated 279.3 billion vehicle miles in the month. Miles have risen 1% in all of 2019 compared with a year earlier.

The data can be used as an indicator of demand for gasoline and diesel. (Reporting by Jessica Resnick-Ault; editing by Jonathan Oatis)
