“A new study shows that the most expensive vehicle to operate is a shopping cart”

“A new study shows that the most expensive vehicle to operate is a shopping cart” is a jocular saying that has been printed on many images.
 
“Marriage soon brings to a man the knowledge that the little grocery cart you push around the aisles of a grocery store is the most expensive vehicle he can operate…about $300 a mile!” was printed in the Wakefield (NE) Republican on February 16, 1956. “The most expensive vehicle you drive is the shopping cart you push down the supermarket aisle!” was printed in the Daily Press (Newport News, VA) on May 26, 1965. “The most expensive vehicle to drive is a shopping cart in the supermarket” was printed in the Tri-City Herald (Pasco, WA) on October 31, 1968. “The most expensive vehicle to operate, per mile, is the shopping cart. C. A. Olson” was printed in the Chicago (IL) Tribune on May 23, 1970.
 
“The most expensive vehicle to operate by far is the Costco shopping cart” was posted on X/Twitter by Carlin Jones on August 29, 2019. “THE MOST EXPENSIVE VEHICLE T0 OPERATE. BY FAR. IS THE COSTCO SHOPPING CART. @COSTCOBUYS” (shown on an image) was posted on iFunny on September 10, 2019. Costco is a store with large shopping carts, and where people buy items in bulk to save money.
