COST OF OPERATING AN AUTOMOBILE

THE PURPOSE IS TO SHOW THE VARIOUS COSTS IN RELATION TO THE HIGHWAY-USER TAXES PAID FOR A FOUR-DOOR SEDAN (PREVIOUS STUDIES WERE BASED ONLY ON THIS VEHICLE), AN AMERICAN-MADE COMPACT AND A SUBCOMPACT. TABLES GIVING THE ESTIMATED COSTS FOR EACH VEHICLE ARE PRESENTED; THE BASIS FOR ESTIMATING THE OPERATING COSTS ARE SHOWN TO EMPHASIZE THE SIMILARITIES BETWEEN THE 3 VEHICLES. THESE COSTS ARE FURTHER SUBDIVIDED INTO ANNUAL COSTS AND COST PER MILE.
