100% to the point.Funny... I just thought of something... Affording and being moneywise are two different things.
I can afford to buy a $200 pair of sneakers, But I wouldn't be caught dead doing so. Being financially wise is what allows people to "afford" things.
But many of you are correct, if I lived in my mama's basement and didn't have a family to raise and pay for, I could "afford" to fill the gas tank up every day.
If someone is keen enough on this that it influences their vehicle-buying process, they're out shopping for a Toyota Camry that they will drive for the next 200k miles.It is called “saving”. Saving for your child, parents, future, charity..etc.
I don't pay CA fuel prices because I stay out of that place. I'm originally from there and loved the state, just not the people too much (except family).
DD is very much an option for me. Go where the gas is cheap, and be free to DD your Bronco the way you want.
