Brief Background of the Study
Cars are considered essential for hectic people such as business men, part time professors, office employees, and other workers who have in demand jobs. Opiniano, J. (2009) concurs that OFW households choose to accumulate savings to buy car instead of luxury homes. They prioritize convenience first especially when travelling or shifting from one place to another. The rationale why they still bring their vehicles even if fuel, toll and parking fees are costly is to lessen exhaustion and to somehow handle their time much possibly.

Laguna was chosen since it is where one of the researchers resides.
