Cost Of Car Ownership

An interesting article here.

The average American with the average job and the average car works 2 hours out of every 8 hour day paying for the ownership and operation of his or her car. Car payments, gasoline, insurance, and occasional repairs eat up 25% of Americans' income.

It's crazy when you think about it.

Working at home, I put $20 of gas in the car every month. Working at home, I have no work clothes or uniforms to buy, no suits or ties to launder. Working at home, lunch is a sandwich from the refrigerator instead of a retail meal. When you add up the money I save by working at home, I've got it pretty good.
