Peak Truck

From Calculated Risk, we see this chart

This sure looks like peak truck (if not peak freight). We (in the US) have been plateaued for about half a decade, from before the recession. This tracks well with other evidence for peak travel.

It seems unlikely to me that we've peaked. As long as we have population growth, we will probably have some growth in total VMT for both passengers and freight.
