For starters, practically every driver speeds. Perhaps if there are enough autonomous cars on the road, the speed limits can be reworked to allow driving faster, decreasing commute time and saving time. Secondly, if cars are redesigned, people can be productive during what is essentially wasted time. With this extra time gained, which can be used for working, relaxing, or resting, people will be much happier. Actually, according to forbes.com, switching to autonomous cars as a country “would imply a time savings worth $99 billion every single year.” In other words, every year the United States could save enough money to buy the company Nike and still have a little cash left.
E-Cigarette users save almost $1500 a year because they made the decision to switch and save money.

Because the Kendrick’s estimated cost for the job was $714 per hour, it can expect $17,850 cost saving for the job with a set of CMI’s pads. If we reflect this economic value to previous $3,000, the Kendrick’s total WTP would be $20,850 per set, and $3,475 per pad. After considering the profit margin for distributors (40%), we can charge $2,482 per pad as a maximum price. However, Sanwal felt the 33% faster speed and 20 times longer life are unusual results, and he believed that the 20% faster speed and 10 times longer life would be more reasonable. When I reflect these conservative conditions, CMI’s can charge $1,595 per pad as a maximum price.
It is cheaper to burn in truck because the diesel can produce more power using less product than gas. During 2015 the U.S has used a record high of 2.1 gallons of diesel. Diesel has been around since 1890`s and is becoming more and more useful every year. The man who invented biodiesel in 1890`s was Rudolf Diesel. Once everyone figured out it was a good fuel to use a man named Martin Mittelbach furthered the development of diesel fuel to lower the price.
Electric cars are improving the speed of innovations in the safety and technology of cars. They push manufactures to compete to create the best electric car and some of the technology from the electric cars transfers to fossil fueled cars. Electric cars also provide tax breaks for the owners. Except in most cases the cost of the electric car to a similarly equipped fossil fueled car, the tax break does not pay the price difference at first. But in the long run the cost for recharging the electric car and a few years of the tax break may make the car cheaper than most fossil fueled
Driverless cars are also better for elderly and disabled people. “The Ruderman Family Foundation and Securing America 's Future Energy (SAFE) finds that by removing the sorts of mobility obstacles that driverless cars resolve, it would allow 2 million more people with disabilities to get to work” (Snyder). So with driverless cars a disabled person they would not have to actually drive the car. (Snyder). Vehicle ownership could decline as much as 43% in the US once the driverless cars are more and more used according to a study by the University of Michigan Transportation Research Institute (Thompson).
Marcus states that these intelligent machines also could replace taxi drivers since it would improve safety on the roads. Besides the health and safety benefits, it would also be beneficial for the economy as AI is estimated to increase the economy with an additional trillion-dollar per year. One who supports this, is Tom Risen (2016) who states that AI is a very promising source of income. Furthermore, he points out that the International Data Corporation estimates that the market of intelligent machines will reach 40 billion dollars by 2020. However, Garrison (2015) also refers to the inventor Ray Kurzweil who claims that AI would be beneficial for the human race.
Therefore, investing in rail project can boost the economic development by providing estimately 24,000 jobs for each billion dollars of investment. (David Randall Peterman, 2013) Besides, building the high speed rail in US can also reduce the energy consumption as well as carbon emission. Based on the California High Speed Rail Authority (2016), HSR only consumes one-third the energy of air travel and one-fifth the energy of automobile travel. The most important is adopting the HSR can mitigate the congestion problem in the US. The cost of congestion on the highway and runway, which approximate $130 billion per year and the increasing population in the next 40 years for increasing over 100 million people in the US make the government start to pay attention to the importance of the development of the HSR
