Answer

According to the US DOT Federal Highway Administration, the average annual miles per vehicle is 12,334 per year. This is based on a total annual miles traveled (3,049,047 million) divided by the total number of vehicle registrations (247 million). This data from 2007 but statistics like this are often a few years in arrears.
