    Atlanta: Most Expensive City for Commuters

    Well you knew this was coming. According to Sperling’s BestPlaces Atlanta is the most expensive city in the nation for commuters. According to Sperling’s a family with two commuters will spend $5,772 per year. Not surprisingly 8 out of the 10 most expensive cities for commuters are in the south.
    The few, the proud, the likely insane, Metro-Atlanta bicycle commuters.

    What is it about southern cities that makes it so expensive?

    I wonder about that aside too. I do know that a couple of Southern cities -- Atlanta and Houston -- are shining examples of suburban sprawl.
    One thing about living in Santa Carla I never could stomach -- all the damn vampires.

    That's why I live 2.5 miles from work. I got tired of living like that. Now I can drive and not use enough gas to measure (almost) or walk or ride the bike. No traffic, less cost, and a lot less headaches.
