If I use the current approximate price of premium fuel here, which is around $4.30/gal, that comes down to $749.52 spent in gas for the year, which is about $2 per day. Not bad... The actual amount of money I spent on gas is considerably less, since the average cost of a gallon of premium fuel has been creeping up for the last year, so $4.30/gal is somewhat of a high figure to use as the basis for that calculation. Anyway, sorry for nerding out. Sometimes it's fun to run all the numbers.

like whoa. you really don't drive huh? I enjoy driving, but not sitting in traffic.
I really recommend using Fuelly.com for all your fuel costs/tracking. its really worthing checking out. Tracks your fuel consumption for you. give you a time and place to put notes in say if you just got a oil change or something that you want to document. it will track it for years. so far my average is like 24.6 for the last 5k miles. give me a total of the $$ i spent. average gas prices.... and many many many more charts. give it a look.


if you have a smartphone there is a app too so you dont have to go home and log on to fill it out. simply load the app fill out the numbers and VOLA.
