Guest: Todd Davidson, PhD, Research Associate in the Energy Institute and the Webber Energy Group, University of Texas at Austin Do you wonder sometimes if it’s worth it to own a car? With all the maintenance and fuel and the hassle of sitting in traffic, I know I’ve wished for a better alternative at times. The Energy Institute at the University of Texas at Austin has come up with an online calculator to tell you whether it makes long-term economic sense to have that car in the driveway or to just rely on ride-hailing services like Uber when you need to go somewhere. It’s available for free at here.
