UMTRI: US average new vehicle fuel economy dropped in August
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2015/09 ... umtri.html

25.3 mpg, down 0.1 from July (and 0.5 mpg YoY, when it reached its all-time peak in 8/14 at 25.8 mpg), as lower gas prices continue to affect people's buying decisions, with lower mpg trucks and SUVs increasing market share.

25.2 mpg, down 0.1 from August, and down 0.6 from the all-time high of 25.8 mpg reached in August 2014. Low gas prices continue to drive sales of pick-ups and SUVs/CUVs.

UMTRI: Average US new vehicle fuel economy in October drops to 25 mpg
http://www.greencarcongress.com/2015/11 ... umtri.html

Down from 25.2 last month, and down 0.8 from it's peak in 8/2014, as low fuel prices continue to drive the sales of pickups, SUVs and CUVs.
[Update]: Per the quote in next post, apparently the October value was revised upwards to 25.1 mpg.
