Homewood repeats as the state’s most walkable city scoring a respectable 53 – down from last year’s score of 55. Birmingham’s score remained steady at 40. While the score stayed the same, the city is now tied for second statewide with Selma and Florence.
The release of this year’s rankings coincided with the unveiling of an infographic created by online money management service Mint.com earlier this week. It lists Birmingham as the No. 2 Guzzler city among its users, with them averaging $216/month for gas.
We figured we’d do a comparison similar to the one we conducted in December – sharing the average amount spent per month in the cities visited by the Birmingham Regional Chamber of Commerce as part of the B.I.G. trips taken between 2002-2008. They’re again listed in the order they were visited:
- St. Louis – $136 – Teetotaler
- Baltimore – $136 – Teetotaler
- Charlotte – $195 – Guzzler
- Nashville – $149 – Sipper
- Pittsburgh – $155 – Sipper
- Denver – $112 – Teetotaler
- Austin – $169 – Gulper
