Car costs

Are you one of the millions of Americans who jumps in your car alone every day?  Click here to calculate the cost of your commute.  I’ve heard of some people where the cost was as over $14,000 a year!  That’s a lot of money.

And the calculator does not take into account other “costs” of driving, including environmental and health impacts.

Is it worth it?  Are there other ways you can get where you’re going?  What about carpooling, to cut down the number of days you drive your car?  What about making some trips by bicycle?

What would you do with the money you save?  At $14,000/year, you could buy a very nice bicycle and still have lots of money left over 🙂
