did you read the article or just the figures?

Runzheimer calculates costs based on a fully loaded 2006 Ford Five Hundred SEL with a 3.0 liter, 6-cylinder engine. The calculation also assumes that the car is driven an average of 15,000 miles for four years within a 50 mile-radius of the city.

I'm sure we're on there cause Houston drivers basically can't drive and the fact that we have at least 1 major flood a year....

I cant believe NYC is not on there. To get a monthly spot in some places in NYC costs more than a studio rent at some of those cities mentioned!
