Between $60 and $70. I fill my tank twice per month which is about $30 each time. I think gas is $3.47 around town now.

Americans complaining about petrol prices should come to the UK. Prices are 3 times higher. So pleased I live in London where there's no point in driving.

Do you really want all us yanks in the UK?

None right now. I imagine I'll be spending at least $100 a month on gas when I get a truck.

I spend $40-45 a week, so roughly $160-180. $45 is usually what it takes to fill up my 12 gallon Civic.

$240/month, 2006 Jeep Wrangler. The 4.0L I6 averages 17 mpg city, which is all I drive.

I owned an 03 Wrangler, 4-banger automatic. It didn't help that over time I put on mud-terrain tires, lifted the thing, and ran out of money for the gear conversion but still - that thing got HORRIBLE gas mileage. Like 7 or 8 in the city.

About $140-160

Around $100, I estimate. I don't keep track of my expenses.

Around $70 - $80 a month. I live in the 'burbs and work downtown and have about a 30 min commute one way. Made sure when I bought my car to get one with 30+ MPG.

Not to be that guy, but I am always confused when people with massive cars get mad at gas prices. I don't mean that in a douchey, holier than thou, way, but more of a... didn't you know what you were getting into? Why are you shocked when your massively inefficient house on wheels with a pool for a gas tank cost loads and loads of money when the price goes up?

I don't know, I just have a hard time feeling any sympathy.

(edit: I like that I am surrounded by people holding on to their Christmas avatars. We are the neighbourhood of people too lazy to take down their lights way after the holidays. Soldier on!)

Public Transit is awesome.

$0... Nothing at all.

$40 bucks. I walk a lot.

I use a little less than 10 gallons of gas a week and gas here is about 3.75 a gallon. So $37.50 a week, which is $150 dollars a month.

Mebbe $250 for three family cars. Midwest USA, $3.50 gal.

$60 a month or so. I live about 5 min from everywhere in town.

#66 Posted by Godlyawesomeguy (6407 posts) -

Too much, am I right?

#67 Posted by monstersnsoup (80 posts) -

$250-$300 a month. I have a 50 mile commute to and from school 5 days a week.

I picked where I live because it's two blocks from a train that pretty much everything I do and like is built near. There are two large grocery stores that I can walk to in less than 5 minutes. A big movie theater, lots of restaurants, bars, etc. are all easily accessible on foot. I use cabs and a car sharing service for local trips. I rent a car on the weekend when I want to go somewhere farther away and that's the only time I ever actually pay for gas, which isn't often.

I average less per month on transportation than I'd pay just for car insurance, not to mention gas, maintenance, parking costs, etc.

I use public transport, so zero :P

My work pays around $400 a month to keep my 1500 Silvarado on the road.

My wifes '11 Kia costs me about $60 a month.

#71 Posted by Contrarian (1143 posts) -

I have the best kind of Subaru Liberty ..... the free kind ...... part of my salary package. So, all my petrol is free and that is about $180 a week, although 80% of that is for work itself.

Too much.

@dagas: "City" meaning everything that's not highway: actual city stop-and-go driving, side roads, back roads. During a Michigan winter a 4x4 is nice to have. Besides, there's more to choosing a vehicle than simply what you need.

@kmdrkul: Ugh. It sounds like the perfect storm of crap MPG's. It was fun though, I bet.

#76 Posted by LTSmash (668 posts) -

$240/month due to daily commute and high Chicago gas prices.
