Holy crap Veronica! Filling the jalopy cost more than Jughead's crown! 39.685 Gallons @ $3.289 = $130.52 which gets me 596 miles.
At 15 MPG it now costs me $0.22 to drive a mile. That's $3.74 to get to work and $3.74 to get home, $37.40 a week. If I bought a replacement car for say, $15K I'd get about $8K for my Suburban leaving $7K to make up in gas. If I got 30 MPG, I'd save $18.70 a week. It would take 375 weeks or 7.2 years to make up the difference. Does that mean that buying a $15K, 30MPG car would pay for itself by mid 2013? Spose I'll have to figure the interest on the money too.
