Why Did Driving Increase So Much?

I think that maybe the more interesting question is just why did people drive so much more in 1995 than they did in 1985? It's a huge increase at a time when I can't really think of any major infrastructure/cultural/technological changes. Sure the exurbs were beginning to grow, but so was closer by suburban employment. Disappearing mass transit had already disappeared.
