Work Step by Step

The statement makes sense. The cost of a car is not just buying the car. We also have to pay for fuel and repairs as we operate the car. A car is a major purchase, so we should definitely consider if we really need a car before buying a car. For example, if we live in a city, we may be able to use public transportation at a cost that is much less than owning and operating a car. If we invested these savings, we could potentially earn a lot of money.
