Even if you ignore the subsidies, the cost of using a car for a trip is a lot more than people often assume, if they are just counting gas and tolls. When you consider the purchase price over the life of a car, the cost of financing which can double what is actually paid, maintenance including tires, insurance, and garaging where applicable.well, we can’t have nice things until we pay for them.
Another good example of how subsidized car travel is. Your illustration would be quite different if roads had to pay for themselves, or be cursed like Amtrak and have to “be profitable.”
