The brochure is a comprehensive look at the total cost of personal vehicle ownership in Canada, for a midsize car and minivan, and is a collaboration of CAA and Runzheimer International.
“CAA has responded to consumer demand and updated our 2008 Driving Costs brochure with figures representative of current gas prices,” said CAA president Tim Shearman. “It is our hope that this information will be helpful to Canadians during this busy driving season.”
