Actually they drive a bit further than I expected. 12,000 miles/year was always the average before, and apparently it's been going up. Interesting that teenagers are driving less and less. And Policy Advice has some neat little factoids on their flyer, like the most dangerous days and times to drive. AAA even included their statistical calculations, which you don't often see.From 2015: New Study Reveals When, Where and How Much Motorists Drive | AAA Newsroom

What I cannot find is the median daily mileage. I think that would be of more value.
Basically, the general public does not drive nearly as far we imagine.
Unfortunately none of them include their raw data, so we have no way of seeing individual trip distances, like you said. Lots of interesting stuff though. Thanks.
