California highways seeing record traffic, bucking years of decline

California’s highways are experiencing record traffic as the economy improves and gas prices plummet, reversing the declines of the recession, new state figures show. Drivers traveled about 185 billion miles on state highways between November 2013 and November 2014, up almost 5 billion miles, or 2.6 percent, from the prior year, according to estimates from the California Department of Transportation. That’s the largest traffic jump since 2003.
