This exhibit contains data from July 2006 to April Weighted monthly NTD ridership data is available from 2002 onward. The gas price overlay is a 12 month average gas price and therefore ridership, employment, and gas data are all 12 month averages. The graph uses 12 month weighted averages, thereby giving a more accurate representation of the monthly NTD data. However, the ridership and employment data have been indexed for a clear comparison 4 Source: National Transit Database, U.S. Energy Information Administration's Gas Pump Data History, and Bureau of Labor Statistics' Employment Data. Transit Ridership is Recovering From Lower Employment and a Crash in Gas Prices Index of Weighted Nonfarm Employment, Seasonally Adjusted 12-Month Weighted Ridership 12-Month Weighted Price of Regular Gas, All Formulations Index of Weighted Nonfarm Employment, Seasonally Adjusted 12-Month Weighted Ridership 12-Month Weighted Price of Regular Gas, All Formulations
