Summary:

People who reported how much they drove online every two days for two weeks reported driving less within this period and, after this period ended, less over the subsequent two weeks. In addition, people who received online feedback information about how much money (on gasoline and maintenance) and pollution they had saved by reducing their driving drove even less.
