7. I acknowledge those points
I have been trying to improve my carbon footprint, but I was making this choice largely on economic necessity at this point. I make ends meet, but don't have much financial slack. I was hoping I could ameliorate things with public transportation. And if my finances weren't so tight, I'd be doing it for the environment's sake anyway.

The wear and tear point is a good one. Maybe that would balance everything out for me.
