Take These Cities for a Spin
There are a lot of benefits to owning a car, not the least of which is being able to travel whenever and wherever you want. But that freedom ain't free, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. It estimates the average cost of owning a car at about $9,576 a year. One way to minimize that cost is to ditch the car and take public transit or a rideshare service, bike, or walk instead. These cities make it easier for their residents to drive less and save more.
