    Car2go seems to have discovered the equivalent of a seller's market.

    The Daimler-owned car-sharing service, in an e-mail to customers, said it'll stop long-term reservation availability for its cars starting November 12. Given that the average trip in a vehicle is less than a half-hour and most reservations are made pretty close to rental time, car2go is reasoning that it's better to keep more of its cars available by making sure none of them stay out for too long.

    The company made the policy change as it disclosed that Car2go Miami attracted more than 6,000 members within its first 100 days of operations, with users making more than 35,000 trips.
