AAA Figures Cost Per Mile


March 26, 2007

AAA Travel says for every mile you drive in 2007, it will cost you 52 cents.

That's according to their new study. It may seem pricey, but the good news is that it didn't increase from before. However, AAA says it's not just the price of gas that's costing drivers.

"A lot of times people don't take into consideration not just the fuel that you're spending your money on, but the maintenance, repair, your insurance, titling, licensing, all of those go into account when you're looking at the total cost of operating a vehicle," said Mary Crawford of AAA.

The study included cars made from 2002 to 2007.
