Year over year.
All the dough, down the drain, never to be seen again.
I am not going to pass judgement on those who own a car as I know that cars are needed for many different reasons. My only hope is that perhaps you can look at your own situation and think about how you may be using your own vehicle (if you have one) and how might be able to reduce your dependance on your vehicle. By reducing your car usage you can save money, feel better physically, and positively affect your community. You can show your friends and family that living carfree or carlight is easy and you can insulate yourself from rising gasoline prices.
Has anyone chosen to actively reduce their car usage and have practical advice for others? Has anyone recently gone carfree - I'd love to hear about your experiences.
