315 billion miles

That's how much road SUVs burned up in this country in 2002. To put that into perspective for you, that's the equivalent of 650,000 round-trips to the moon.

The Census has a summary of the rise of the behemoth vehicle from 1997 to 2002: registrations increased 56% (there are 8.7 million more of them)--most notably in Tennessee, Georgia, and Indiana.
