    Philadelphia has 2,172,896 parking spaces. So how come you're still circling the block?
    There are few things Philadelphians like to complain about more than parking. There's not enough, some argue. There's too much, others contend. Finding a spot takes too long, or garages are too expensive. Some residents believe on-street permit prices should increase - even five or tenfold. Others say parking should be free.
