Ian Clifford on BNN

In this interview, Clifford mentioned that "our cars vehicles cost between 1 and 2 cents a mile to operate in the US." Now that's the type of math that makes sense to a neanderthal like me. My SUV that's getting 15mpg is costing me $4.24/gal or 28 cents per mile.  Putting it back into mpg, we're talking about 212-424mpg equivalent, correct???   This article from the Cedar Park, TX area seems to agree with my math somewhat.  It's a simplistic way of thinking about it and probably excludes important/signficant cost factors. If you need something a bit more thought out, read along here.
