Python Error - help please

What am I missing??

C:\Python33>python ex4.py
  File "ex4.py", line 10
    print "There are", cars, "cars available."
                    ^
SyntaxError: invalid syntax


The code:

cars = 100
space_in_car = 4.0
drivers = 30
passengers = 90
cars_not_driven = cars - drivers
cars_driven = drivers
carpool_capacity = cars_driven * space_in_a_car
average_passengers_per_car = passengers / cars_driven

print "There are", cars, "cars available."      
print "there are only", drivers, "drivers available."
print "There will be", cars_not_driven, "empty cars today"
print "We can transport", carpool_capacity, "people today."
print "We have", passengers, "to carpool today."
print "We need to put about", average_passengers_per_car, "in each car."


python version info:


C:\Python33>python
Python 3.3.3 (v3.3.3:c3896275c0f6, Nov 18 2013, 21:19:30) [MSC v.1600 64 bit (AM

Now it runs correctly:

C:\Python33>python ex4.py
There are 100 cars available.
there are only 30 drivers available.
There will be 70 empty cars today
We can transport 120.0 people today.
We have 90 to carpool today.
We need to put about 3.0 in each car.
