The cheapest way to travel is through a vehicle that can be rented for three hours or more, according to a new study.
The study, conducted by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and published in the American Journal of Public Health, analyzed data from the National Travel Information Center, a nonprofit research group.
The results showed that the average cost of a rental car was $13,000 to $14,000, depending on the size of the rental, the cost of fuel and a variety of other factors.
The average cost per hour of transportation, meanwhile, was $1,934.
Those numbers were much lower than the cost per trip on commercial air travel, the study found.
The median cost of driving a vehicle was $6,049, and the median cost per mile was $2,567.
The findings came from a study of more than 4,000 people who rent cars and have children, said study author Shari Dickey, an assistant professor in the UNC School of Public Affairs.
The survey also found that people who drive are more likely to use public transportation or to have a vehicle with a seat belt, which are both considered safer ways to travel than cars, she said.
The researchers used the National Transportation Statistics System’s Monthly Travel Survey, which collects data on the number of miles traveled by vehicles on U.S. roads each month.
The numbers were adjusted to include the cost and average cost for a rental vehicle.
The data comes from the survey, which was conducted in the spring and early summer of 2015.
A more detailed report on the study, titled “Rent-A-Car and Child Transportation: The Cost and Benefits of the Cost-Effective Option,” is expected to be published in June.
“It is not a surprise that these costs are higher than other forms of transportation and that they increase the likelihood of being unprofitable,” Dickey said.
“The key takeaway here is that people have the financial resources to rent their own vehicles.
It is not as simple as renting a car and then taking it to a certain destination.”
The average monthly cost for renting a vehicle is $13.00 per day, and $8.25 per week, the researchers found.
A typical family could spend $30,000 on a rental, with about $11,000 spent per year on fuel, according the study.
Renting a vehicle for three or more hours a day is cheaper than driving it.
“Most people will pay $10 per hour, with a maximum rate of $2.50 per mile,” Dixie said.
In addition to costs, people who travel by car can spend money on fuel to reduce the cost.
The cost of using public transportation to get to the destination is higher than the costs of renting a bus or train.
People who travel to the airport and back can save about $2 per trip.
Those who ride a train to the hotel will save $2 more per trip, and those who ride buses will save an additional $1 per trip depending on their time zone, according Dixie.
Dixie, who also is a member of the American Public Transportation Association’s advisory board, said people who do not have a car should consider renting a rental.
“Renting a vehicle can be a convenient option for many people who want to travel,” Dixie said.
She said people should also look at how much their vehicle would cost if they were to travel by foot, car, bicycle or bus.
“While the costs to rent a vehicle are lower than paying for transportation, they are not as low as some other forms and are still a substantial cost,” Dicy said.
A recent study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that the typical adult spends $8,700 on health care annually.
About 30 percent of adults in the U. S. have a health insurance plan, but only about 10 percent of that amount is covered by Medicare.
The other 30 percent is either covered by employer plans, private health insurance or Medicaid.
“For many people, the health insurance that they have is not sufficient to cover the cost,” said Dr. Michael T. Smith, a professor of medicine at Emory University School of Medicine and an expert on insurance and health care costs.
“If you don’t have a plan, you’re going to be paying more out of pocket and that is not necessarily a good thing,” Smith said.
Dickey and her co-authors from UNC found that when people are using public transit to get where they want to go, they save about 70 cents per mile.
That is higher when people travel in groups.
“When people are in groups, they spend less than when they’re traveling alone,” Diccys study found, with the average savings per mile being $2 for the group and $1.10 for each person in a group.
“This study indicates that public transit can save a lot of money in the long run,”
