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.
