Expenses

Ever wonder who much you typically spend on gas per week? Mine comes to about $100-$125/wk. That's with a Honda Prelude coupe & BMW 335i sedan filling up w/ premium (avg here for about 3.75/gal) and filling the XK Hemi @ 3.25/gal. Here in Texas, our freeways are fun to fly, but no fun to 'park' in traffic. Welcome folks..."Houston, we DO have a problem"!.

I fill up once per week, either my Commander, or my Magnum R/T. Depending on gas prices it's between currenlty $55 to $75 per week.

I live about 4 miles from work.

We fill up the Patriot about once every 5-6 days (now at $3.25/gal). The Commander gets about $50 in the tank every couple weeks, as it's hardly driven.

I used to spend a lot more, but for the time being I only drive the kids to school, soccer, and other events. Once I get back to having to actually GO to work (as opposed to doing everything online), I know my expenses will go back up. But for now, I put maybe $100-200/month in the XK. Unless we take trips to visit family, then it goes WAY up.

I usually spend around $100 a week. I live right by work, but I do a lot of driving.

Are you serious? I don't even see how that's possible. The car payment, insurance payment, and gas for the new car is less than $100/week?

I'll spend the extra buck a month to be comfortable and safe in the Commander. =) And with the falling gas prices, I'd expect the Commander to be cheaper very soon.
