    Arrow How much do oyu spend on gas/mo.?

    That's petrol/gas/gasoline/fuel.

    I just tallied to try to find the hole in my checking account and guess what, $365 and that was a few days short of a full month.


    I dare you to look at just how much it costs you! I use a card so it was relatively simple to be accurate.

    I couldn't believe it. I thought it would be mid 200's. No wonder I'm broke. And I haven't bought a vid card in over a year!

    Re: How much do oyu spend on gas/mo.?

    I was on empty today and spent $37.00 to top it off with 91 octane "premium" fuel.

    I go through about 4-5 tanks per month depending on how busy I am with work. My Audi gets pretty good mileage too. Around 28-33mpg on the highway and around 20-23mpg around town depending on how "spirited" my driving is.

    I'm really getting sick of these gas prices. We MUST build more refineries in this country. We're at capacity and the demand is only growing more and more due to the SUV craze and increasing population.

    Supply of oil is not the issue or is its price per barrel. Its the refinining capacity of the nation...

    You must either drive a LOT or live in Europe. I spend around $160 a month or less, and I drive one of those dreaded V8 powered SUV's!

    All of the data I've been reading from economists is showing oil hitting over $80 a barrel and gas hitting $3.50 a gallon in the US by the end of next year. If this happens we can kiss any chance of a good economy good-bye. We can blame China for this one as they are really adding the cars over there. By 2010 India will have 36 times more cars than it did in 1990. China will have 90 times more cars by then, and by 2030 it will have more cars than the US!

    China is really starting to compete with the US for oil reserves and the proof is in the higher prices we are seeing at the pump. They are also going after natural gas. Think your heating bill is high now? Unfortunately you haven't seen anything yet.

    Re: How much do oyu spend on gas/mo.?

    $30 ish. My Jetta gets good mileage (not as good as the turbo model), but I take public transit to work. Less stressful, quicker and I can read on the way. Most of the places I go during the week mean that I don't want to drive home. I mostly use it on the weekends.

    We need to raise the fleet fuel economy standards. Poeple's dependance on gas guzzling vehicles makes this country just too prone to recessions due to fuel prices.

    The price at the pump is far more related to our refining capability than in oil supply.

    If these gas prices go up a little more, i'll be in the $200-$300 block. Car gets good mileage, 200hp Chevy V6 gets 29mpg, but the GF works about an hour drive away.

    At these prices, we should see some domestic entrepreneurs opening plants soon enough.

    Re: How much do oyu spend on gas/mo.?

    I get roughly 15-17mpg (I attribute some of this to a vacuum leak that I think I have...so I should be getting better when I fix it), so I spend about $100 a month on gas...

    I don't drive that far , school is a mile away and work is 2 miles away...
