Of course it was this year that my wife got a job that required a roundtrip commute of 50 miles each day. And of course, it was this year that gas prices in the Chicagoland area easily exceeded $4 a gallon.
This means that we paid at total of about $5,500 this year for a vehicle that we own outright. It’s kind of a shocking total considering that we didn’t even have to make a single payment on it, and it’s a good example of just how costly vehicle ownership can be.
