How much does it cost to drive?

This site is kind of neat. I am not sure how accurate it can be, but I think it gives a decent ballpark possibly.

Neat site GB. I figured how much it costs each time we go to visit the boy at school for each vehicle we own!

Really neat site. I did notice that it used $2.82 per gallon for fuel. That would require some work.

If anyone is interested in saving money on fuel.

Such a cool site - Thanks! I'm amazed at the difference in gas prices just here in Texas. I saw gas this morning here at the coast for $2.34 but my son paid $2.99 last night in Austin.

We are paying a full dollar more than you are and almost a full dollar more than your son on average. It's crazy.

I frequently commute to work by bicycle, about 15 miles round trip, but not to save money on gas or anything like that. I just sometimes prefer to ride than drive. But I guess I'm saving some money on gas...

I don't know how you do it, Callisto. Just getting to work and back is bound to eat a significant portion of your budget. I really feel for you.
