AAA: Driving costs increased 1.9 cents per mile in the last year
Want to save some green? AAA suggests a pretty obvious option: consider choosing a smaller vehicle or a minivan over an SUV. The annual average cost of driving a small sedan is $6,320 per year, while a large sedan costs $9,769 per year. Your average minivan will run you $8,644 per year, compared to $10,448 for a four-wheel-drive mid-size SUV. Besides the cost savings, we'd be remiss if we didn't point out that the smaller sized car will likely include a smaller-sized engine emitting less CO2 into the air.
