Automobiles wait in a traffic jam on a New York City highway in this November 20, 2007 file photo. Americans drove fewer miles in December for the 14th month in a row, but the decline was not as steep as in previous months thanks to cheaper gasoline prices that encouraged additional travel in some states, the U.S. Transportation Department said on Thursday.
