How many automobiles do you own?
Even if you happen to live in one of the cities where there is an abundance of mass public transit, it’s still not all that easy to get around. We tend to depend on our cars, at least a lot of us do. Having the key to your automobile jangling around in your pocket or your purse provides a tangible sense of freedom that comes in handy in a lot of ways.
If you have a garage, a carport or a convenient place to park, then having a car makes even more sense. Yes, an automobile is a financial commitment when you start figuring in all the costs that go with owning one . . . or two, or three.
Xoom decided to look into the car ownership situation. A leading digital money transfer provider, Xoom conducted a survey of some of its Fil-Am customers and asked this question: How many automobiles do you own?
What would you guess the most mentioned answer to be? An even 40 percent of the respondents said they owned one car, but almost as many, 35 percent, said they owned two or three cars. And seven percent of those who took part in the survey said they owned four or five cars while two percent said they owned six or more cars.
