It’s a rule of life most human beings learn before they obtain a driver’s license: cars cost money. Big money.
First, you have to have enough to buy one. Then you need enough for gas, insurance, general maintenance, parking, etc. Let’s not forget that as soon as a new vehicle is driven off the lot, its value depreciates.
But now, because of a partnership between peer-to-peer car-sharing service RelayRides and automaker General Motors (NYSE:GM), there’s an new way for some vehicle-owners to make extra dough — by renting out their wheels.
