Public transportation is the most efficient way to get around. Riding the train allows people to save money, get from place to place in a crowded city faster, while also giving them time to read the paper, call their mom, or get some needed extra sleep in before their long day. Although many people are shifting more toward public transportation, cars will never go out of style. Cars will always be a major source of public transportation due to the advantages cars have over public transportation.Cars allow freedom to move anywhere at anytime, public transportation has a set schedule and can only take someone so far. The car industry is evolving to fit the wants and needs of today's society.
Without the automobile these roads and quick ways of transport would not be around. Transportation was made easier and faster, no more buses or travel by train. Americans now had the freedom to travel and explore their country. The automobile was able to cut travel time in half. Life no longer revolved around the busy city.

Also with the invention of this car making streets less congested that means that traffic would literally not exist. People would not have to take more time out of their day to be on time for work or school. They can start to use this extra time on hanging out with friends and family and coming closer together.
The Roaring Twenties: America Fuels Up During the times span between 1920 and 1929, the United states experienced a dramatic change in society on an environmental, industrial, and cultural level. The availability of automobiles to the common citizen molded the American landscape, industry, and national identity. As a result, the financial and cultural gap between the upper class wealth and the lower class laborers shrank and the first semi-modern middle class was born. Henry Ford helped fuel the revolution of the American Dream by providing jobs that offered financial stability and transportation which offered a freedom many people had never experienced before. The “horseless wagon” improved street conditions and overall living conditions.
The automobile is one of the most significant inventions of all time. The Industrial Revolution brought forth countless modern inventions, and the automobile is arguably one of the most beneficial because it considerably enhanced the way that people lived their lives. Before the invention of the automobile, the majority of transportation was done by walking, riding bicycles, or riding horses; long distance trips were typically done by riding trains. Traveling from one place to another took a substantial amount of time, and people were interested in finding a way to cut back on travel time. There were an abundance of other inventions that were created in hopes to shorten the transportation time such as sail wagons and quadracycles; ultimately, the automobile became the most popular way for people to commute.
In ten years the roads will be safer when car companies can provide us with cars that drive themselves. I believe in ten years, cars will no longer need gasoline, but will run on an alternative fuel source. Currently companies are investing a ton of money into research about possible energy sources to power cars other than the current gasoline. I believe these cars of the future will be able to travel farther than the ones we have today, on a more abundant resource. With the way people are searching for the answer to the problem of our oil resources depleting, and the billions, possibly trillions, of dollars to be made, I believe that we are not far from forgetting about gasoline for our cars.
Transportation is not just technology but rather is a system created by people that depends on money, energy, land and culture. The internal-combustion engine, which runs on either gas, oil or air, was invented in the 1880’s and was used almost immediately in car production. This new development of technology in cars made travel cheaper and faster. Between the 1990’s to 1920’s, consumers chose the internal combustion powered automobile because it provided power, reliability and economical affordability. Consumers in the early 20th century wanted internal combustion cars because those cars fit their standard terms of money, land, speed and appeal for the American automobile industry.
From the literal meaning, with RWD, the rear wheels drive the vehicle. RWD appear with the invention of automobiles. Before 1950s the RWD are the most common way for cars, like the well-known VW Beetle and Ford Model T. Thereafter with popularizing of FWD and 4WD, the proportion of RWD vehicles decreased dramatically. Currently, only trucks, sports cars and luxury cars are still based on RWD. FWD, which means front wheels drive, are more popular now because it’s cheaper than RWD.
Electronics The invention of the microprocessor in 1971 was a huge milestone that eventually changed everyone's everyday lives. This invention enabled the world to own a personal computer in their home as well as their office. People were able to work more efficiently and progressively with these new electronic devices. Electronics today provides the world with an infinite amount of information at a much faster speed than that information would ever have been available before. The American public is dependent on the usage of many electronics in their lives such as the television, audio receivers, and amplifiers to stay updated on world-wide issues.
Although Woodrow Wilson intended for this purpose, it soon became clear that these roads were beginning to become very popular among normal citizens. The Federal-Aid Highway Act of 1921 had a relatively limited $75 million budget for improving the roads; this small budget proved to be inadequate for the large project that the United States planned to embark on.... ... middle of paper ... ..., and social aspects of society. It was one of the main reasons why the United States had so much success throughout the 1950s. It allowed more businesses to prosper, while also increasing the quality of life for normal people. It also boosted sales in one of the biggest industries in America to this day: the automobile industry.
