Driving costs HOW much?

Downtown street on a hot day Miles in a car add up. AAA estimates that the average cost of driving one mile in the US is around 59¢ per mile. Let’s say you have a 15-mile drive to work each day. That means driving to and from work costs you around $17.70 each day, $354 per month, and $4,248 per year. That’s a huge amount of money to be spending on driving, and that doesn’t even take into account the cost of parking and car insurance payments. According to a 2012 Fox News article, the cost of parking in most U.S. cities averages around $155 per month. In major metro areas, however, parking a car is much pricier, upwards of $400 or $500 dollars!  The average San Franciscan, for example, spends $4,500 on a parking space every year; the average New Yorker spend up to $6,500. No matter which city you live in, commuting by car in the U.S. is probably costing you several thousands of dollars annually. That’s not even counting the cost of car insurance and the amount you spent on your car in the first place! It's time to make a change.

You’ve wasted half a work day sitting in traffic! Over the course of a year, you’l spend 36 full work days sitting in your car, probably more time than you spend in the office for an entire month.
