This morning, I had to take my car into the repair shop for a brake job and to fix the air conditioning. I’m not a happy camper. But wait! There is something to be grateful for! My mechanic took me to work and I sit here ready to put in a full day’s work…car or no car.
Why is it that owning a car can be such a financial drain? First, there’s the high purchase price of the car itself, then the high gas ($4.11 per gal at the time of this writing), then the repairs, and so on.
