Question/Topic: Automobiles - Cost of operating 
Answer/Pointer: In addition to the purchase price, the owner of a new car or automobile has considerable operating costs. The cost of driving a mid-sized car in 1996 rose to 51.43 cents a mile, an increase of 10 cents per mile since 1990. Exzpenses such as fuel, tires, and routing maintenance were up from 1990, and fixed-cost expenses were up more than $3.00, at an average of $13.69 a day.
