Stick Shifts Popular Despite Lower Gas Mileage

Stick shift cars are making a comeback.

Manual transmission vehicles are popular for several reasons, according to Edmunds-dot-com.

They are typically less expensive than cars with automatic transmission and some consider them more fun to drive.

On the downside, they tend to get lower gas mileage.

During the first quarter of 20-12, six-and-a-half percent of new cars sold had stick shifts.

That's just a small portion of the market -- but it's the highest percentage since 2006.
