I’m not all that old, but the average car now costs more than what I paid for my first house. I can deal with that. But, I am flummoxed by the fact that in large metropolitan areas people are paying more for parking places than I paid for my first house. (Let’s hope that in a few years from now I’m not writing a blog post about how a tankful of gasoline for my automobile costs more than I paid for my first house.)
Anyone who has lived or worked in a locale dense with commuters understands the difficulty of finding parking and paying for it. It’s simply a matter of supply and demand. The demand is greater than the supply, hence the difficulty in finding it. And, since the demand is greater than the supply, the prices rise until the demand levels off. It is basic economics. However, understanding the situation doesn’t help you resolve your need to locate parking at a reasonable price.
