with the reduction in traffic the last couple days, I’ve been averaging 36.5 mpg over the typical 32 +/-.
that is about .4 gallons a week
over 50 weeks that is 20 gallons a year
and at $2.60 a gallon that is $52 / year and $60 at $3.00 /gallon
in time, the morning commute goes from 50 minutes to 25 and the afternoon from 35 minutes to about 30. that is 30 minutes a day extra
2.5 hours a week.
125 hours a year.
not just commuting, but the additional traffic costs me an extra $50 - $60 and 125 hours a year.
