When I got my current job, it meant no more driving to work since the parking situation downtown is a nightmare. That meant that my car would end up sitting home more than not. So I started keeping statistics on mileage and gas usage. I figured that since it wasn't being used all the much, it would be easy to keep track of. Now it's New Year's Day and I can total up my records for the year.
I drove my car 5,766 miles in 2007.
I put 246.423 gallons of gas in my car in 2007.
That gasoline set me back $732.57 in 2007.
The average price per gallon I paid was $2.97.
My car got 23.398 miles to the gallon in 2007.
It cost right around 12.7 cents for every mile driven in 2007.
The figures from last year are as follows:
I drove my car 6745 miles in 2006.
I put 247.573 gallons of gas in my car in 2006.
That gasoline set me back $660.59 in 2006.
The average price per gallon I paid was $2.67.
My car got 27.244 miles to the gallon in 2006.
It cost right around 9.8 cents for every mile driven in 2006.
