The proposals and ideas of motorized power began floating around between inventors in the late 1700s and more in the 1800s and 1900s when soon the first automobile would be invented. The purchasing of automobiles definitely caused economic benefits as well as downsides. Although when first invented automobiles were not as widely used for things such as work today, they did have an impact on the everyday American Life.
