Being former military and aircrew our common answer was we were on duty 25 hours a day, 8 days a week, 32 days a month and 367 days a year, sometimes it did seem like that.

I'll bet that's a typo failure. "The average American drives 13,000 miles per year".
The gubmint says we drive 13,476 miles per year. Average Annual Miles per Driver by Age Group
