This article is truly ridiculous. People have a completely warped perspective of how much gas costs, relative to what it's costs to own any car, forget about an M5.
Funny story I had recently.
I was in a taxi in Augusta recently:
Taxi driver: I'm sorry to tell you the rates have gone up by 25 cents per mile today. It's because the increase in gas prices is killing us. Even with the increase, the gas prices are tough for us.
Me: let's do the math. How many miles is this trip?
Him: 12 miles.
Me: How much has the gas price gone up in the last year?
Him: $1 per a gallon.
Me: So if this trip is half a gallon, then you are spending an extra 50 cents to drive me today. Now how much more are you making - you said 12 miles and an extra 25 cents per mile. So you are getting an extra $3.
Him: that's right.
Me: so why are you complaining about gas prices. Seems to me that you have been taking advantage of gas prices to increase your profits?
Him: I had never done the math. Thanks for telling me.
