I'm becoming more and more thankful that I can walk to work lately. Sadly though, my family doesn't get to see much of my anymore, since even the short trip from Seattle to Portland to visit my sister is >$60 in gas alone right now.
I filled up the tank yesterday at the low low price of $2.67/gallon. (92 octane)
My husband drives 72 miles one way to work. When gas prices were down a little two years ago he sold his Honda Civic which got 40-45 mpg to buy a Toyota Tacoma. Boy is he paying for that now. Gas costs more than the monthly payment. I only drive two miles to work and that includes dropping my daughter off at school so I don't really feel the sting too much.
My car is easy on gas, so I only have to fill up every two weeks. My commute is short, about 25 miles total in a day, so it doesn't really bother me throwing $20 into the tank. Granted in November it was only $14 to fill up, I'm just glad I'm not a sucker in a SUV or Truck. Friend of mine commutes from Everett to Burien daily in a Ford Explorer, she's paying nearly $300/month for gas. Insane.
I drive about 6 miles each way to work. But, I drive a pick up truck so, gas mileage isn't that good. The gas prices have not had an affect as far as work goes but, does limit the amount of running around.
I drive about 6 miles each way to work. I have a huge truck that gets about 14mpg. I am planning on selling it for other reasons then gas prices so I will be picking up a motorcycle that will get 50mpg
Most bikes dont get that great of miliage my gsxr only gets about 25mpg, my wife ninja 250 gets 45 mpg.
I should be looking for a smaller truck $100 to fill up is crazy but I only have a 10 minute drive to work.
My old 2000 GSXR 750 used to get about 50mpg on the road, I am planning on a CB919, or something similar, so maybe it won't be that great, but it will definately be an improvement on the $550 payment + 14mpg around town in my truck.
