After my Fiat 500 turned out to be a lemon I decided to crunch some numbers about the cost of driving. AAA says the average compact costs around $7k a year or $0.46 per mile.

The findings of the 2014 ‘Your Driving Costs’ study include:

Based on Driving 15,000 miles annually
Small
Sedan
Medium Sedan
Large Sedan
Sedan Average
SUV 4WD
Minivan

Cost Per Mile
46.4 cents
58.9 cents
72.2 cents
59.2 cents
73.6 cents
65.0 cents

Cost Per Year
$6,957
$8,839
10,831
8,876
11,039
9,753
