Transportation Cash Flow

Several recent studies, including one by the Los Angeles Regional Transportation Commission and another by Montgomery County, MD, have shown that for every $1.00 spent on gasoline, only $.15 stays in the regional economy, and much of the rest leaves the US economy. For that same dollar spent on public transportation fare, 80 percent goes to wages that are spent on local goods and services, which in turn generate more that $3.80 in additional regional economic activity.
