Well, kms said that the USGS is making its data available for free. Given that, is there a really good reason to do so in the US?
Also, does this data include addresses? That would be even more difficult, but pretty necessary if you want directions to a specific place.
Another great project would be a public transportation database, for those without cars.

Well, Streets & Trips costs under $40, so the cost may be in principle more than price. Other than that, I agree, this is highly desirable.
