Driving stick is an art form, but, like virtually all other art forms, it's one that none of us has any interest in learning.
According to a new study by CarMax, less than 4% of the cars we buy today have manual transmissions. That's down from 27% back in 1995.
In fact, there are only two cities in the entire country where at least 6% of the cars have stick shifts: El Paso, Texas and Dothan, Alabama. Everywhere else, we're going automatic.
