Transportation Plan 2020 - HPMS

“The most recent 10 years of HPMS data was evaluated and an average yearly growth rate was calculated. This average yearly growth rate was 2.0828 percent.” (Appendix A)

Regression Results (RI Data)

Linear trends are tied to a base year (e.g., a 1970-2000 linear trend means that the annual VMT change is X percent of 1970 VMT, not X percent of the preceding year VMT).

Regression Results (FHwA Data)

Linear trends are tied to a base year (e.g., a 1970-2000 linear trend means that the annual VMT change is X percent of 1970 VMT, not X percent of the preceding year VMT).

10 Year Period HPMS Growth Rates

Annual rates dropped below 2 percent in the late 1990’s, bottoming out in the 10 year period ending 1998.

11 Year Period HPMS Growth Rates

Annual rates dropped below 2 percent in the late 1990’s, still exhibiting a small decline through the 11year period ending 2000.

Summary

Conclusions

  • Trends are in pretty reasonable agreement given the cursory level of analysis.

    • Factors such as changing fuel efficiency, offroad equipment gasoline sales, through-travel/refueling effects, etc. are likely to explain differences.

  • Initial concern over large discrepancy between gasoline sales and HPMS trends appears to be unfounded, but likelihood of negligible future VMT growth also doubtful.
