The recent thread on gas prices this holiday season got me to thinking, ive never really paid attention to how much i save a month by not having a car. I didn't become car free to save money at first it was from a license suspension but now im just so used to it i prefer it. Well i did some figures and this number is based on me buy a reasonable priced car with a loan, also i have a horrid driving record so that kinda inflates my number but i on average save 480.00 a month i know i never realized it but i guess it all adds up car payment ins. maintenance, gas, etc. Im now even more happy with being car free
EDIT I added maintenance in on yearly based on the mileage i currently ride then divided, using dealer recommended sched.
