One car or two

One way to save money is to have only one car (insurance, car payments etc). Does your family have one car or two? If you have two, would you consider downsizing to one to save $$?

Our family has one. My husband bikes/busses to work (only a mile away though).

 We have two cars but only one car payment. We could make it with just one car but prefer to each have one.

We have 2 cars, but we own both and considering only 1 of them holds our entire family and I need it for school drop off and pick-up while hubby is at work....nah, we wouldn't downsize.  It isn't necessary for us to save money.  I go about 2 weeks on a tank of gas easily so it's not worth the hassle for basically the same costs.  I'd have to take hubby to work, come home, pick him back up come home.  It would actually be more expensive for gas that way.

One car for me. I miss being in an area where I could just use public transport but for now I need a car.
