Of course, my use of Express when I was flying out and back every darn weekend. For once every X months, Remote could be more appealing, and then yeah, you're talking $24 vs. $52.

ETA- apropos of nothing, but I've never been to Love Field.
Another difference some people don't consider is that for people in Dallas, it's a lot cheaper to take a cab to Love Field than to DFW. That way, you don't even have to pay for parking.

Or if you want to snag a ride with a friend or relative, again it's easier to convince them to take you to Love Field than to drive all the way to DFW and back. Depending on when your flight is and how well you know your neighbors, you could even get one to drop you off on the way to work.

I park in the farthest parking lot and the farthest row every time I fly from Love. In fact, I generally take the same parking spot/row (I have lost my car in the parking garage several times and now I know exactly where I parked each and every time).

Using the moving walkways, and walking at a brisk pace, I can make it to my car in about 5 minutes. Compare that to DFW, where you don't know which terminal where you might land. Not even considering remote parking, but it quite likely that you are taking 15 minutes to get to your car at DFW if you are in a different terminal.

Now I love the valet parking at DFW. I use it every time because I have been burned so often, but it is not cheap.

Overall, I would say parking at Love is 3x better than DFW. The downside at Love is just not that bad compared to DFW. I don't valet at Love because it is just not necessary.

Good points, although now they have DART going to DFW (FINALLY!) to help that issue. I get that that's not an option for everyone, though.
