CANADIANS LOVE THEIR CARS, but do they really
know the true cost of running them each year? And sure, for many, it is a deductible
expense that can be partially written off against income for income tax purposes...but
does this fact preclude them from at least making the calculations and finding out?
Use the following work sheet to calculate what it
costs to run your present automobile and even if you dont decide to give it up
completely and begin taking public transportation, at least you can determine whether it
may not be time to trade in the current "gas guzzler" and purchase or lease a
more economical vehicle.
