Re: (HOW MUCH A YEAR DO YOU SPEND ON GAS)

I'm sure it is well over 6k for me with both cars. I figure 25 cents a mile to drive a truck just in gas. High gas prices will be very bad for the economy, people can't spend money they already spent on gas for less needed things like eating out, entertainment, vacations, etc.

A lot of people I'm sure are spending 10% or more of their gross income on gas.

I suppose we could retire the old pick-up trucks but then we'd have big car payments on a Prius, Volt, Smartcar, etc.

Obama won't get re-elected with gas more than doubling since he was elected.

Right, we need Rick Santorum to really "sort" us out... :LMAO

...then with a Catholic in the White House all we will have to worry about will be the Priest's open season on little boys.

People driving too much or get shitty gas mileage. If you get 30 miles a year and drive 18000 miles a year thats 600 gallons. Avergae gas price has been well below 4 bucks lately. But even at 4 thats only 2400 bucks. 18K miles a year is a lot of miles for most people. Thats about 70 miles a day 5 days a week.

Ifyou drive a semi normal 15K a year and get even modest gas mileage even at 4 bucks you should be well below 2K a year in fuel for a single car.

Re: (HOW MUCH A YEAR DO YOU SPEND ON GAS)

I spend around $6000 a year on gas... I do a lot of driving.
Ditto. I spend easily a nickel a month on gas. I fill my tank twice a week, about $60-65 to fill the tank. BTJ, don't depress me about $5 gas. Jaysus, I haven't been thinking of the price of gas in a while, now you got me thinking about it!

I spend approximately $180 a month driving my Prius. Yes, a Prius... I actually enjoy the ride.
My SUV stays in the garage except for when I take the dog hiking or to the beach.

Somebody told me that Prius owners need to replace the battery every 4 years and it cost 2K. Is that true?

Re: (HOW MUCH A YEAR DO YOU SPEND ON GAS)

I'm spending over $100 a week to drive a Ford F-150 to a condo I'm remodeling that is 25 miles away, about 350 miles a week there alone...maybe 450-500 miles a week total at 16 mpg....It's killing me ! I rarely use the truck this much...more like 5k miles a year on average, but sometimes you need a truck.

A smaller 4 cylinder truck is becoming an option, I could manage with something less than an F-150 4X4. When gas gets to $5/ gallon I can't really afford to drive much...or time for a bike/ motorcycle/ scooter/ moped. :+clueless:shoot:
