It just depends on where you live

Even here in the USA, car ownership really depends on where you live.

It would be impossible to not own a car if you lived in Montana or Wyoming, or just about any other place that wasn't a large urban area.

On the other hand, owning a car in Manhattan is a real pain in the butt. You either need to be very wealthy or very foolish to try to keep a car in Manhattan, where parking is nonexistent, and foot traffic moves faster than driving a car.

Notice the parking rates in midtown Manhattan...

Also notice the "additional charge for exotic cars" of $422.39 on top of the $464.63 per month. Knowing NYC as I do, they probably consider anything other than a Ford Focus as an "exotic car."

Also notice that there is an 18.375% tax on top of those charges. And the attendant will expect a nice tip.

It really makes you wonder why anyone would bother to build an office building, when you can rent parking spaces for so much.

Also... you might be paying $3.22 a gallon out in rural areas, but in NYC it will cost around a dollar a gallon more than that.
