65$ a week on Gas?  That's insane.  Thats equalivant to drving over 1,200 miles a month.

 

 

65 a wk * 4 weeks a month = $260 a month gas bill

260 / $4.50 a gallon (about avg price of one of the highest places in the country for gas HI) = 57.7 Gallons of gas

57.7 Gallons of gas * 21 MPG (typicall avg for cars these days) = 1,213 Miles.

 

1,213 miles driven per month seems extreme and most likely unrealistic for most ppl.


Lol my parents wish they only spent 260 a month. They spend more than that a week. Even my brother who does not own businesses spends more than $65 a week. A lot of people still drive SUVs, and whenever I fill it up it costs about 90 dollars. A few months ago it was easily over 100. Trucks also burn a lot. 21 MPG is really only for small vehicles, which not many people have.

I don't know if you realize  according to the national average reported by Department of Transportation the average driver in America drives about 13,500 miles a year which is about what you claim is "extreme and most likely unrealistic"

Actually for the gas that i pay (about 3.50 a gallon) that would be 1,582 miles per month or 18,991 a year.  

 

I do a lot of driving but not 19K miles a year.

Also remember it's based off what you drive as well, and the rate of gas prices. But I drive a Lexus IS which isn't a gas hog by any means, there are PLENTY worse than me and I only live 13 miles away from my work, I know people who live over hour drive away. Just because you would never go over doesn't mean no one else does.

 

Everything is subjective to your lifestyle, if it's credit cards with annual fees, or car you decide to drive for looks style gas mileage or whatever. Do the research and weigh your pros and cons and decide accordingly, don't take anyone's word for it, but research research research before you commit. Not enough people research so we have a great deficit in this country cause people believed in a idiot to run the country. (Bush) and surprisingly we got 2 nice choices for cannidates to choose from this year. 1. Obama the underachiever or 2. Mitt Romney the compulsive liar who has no firm backbone on anything he claims he believes.

Running a retail and janitorial business needs big vehicles. 12-15 MPG is about normal for the vehicles we use. My brother gets about 18; he has a Pontiac G8 and loves to floor it any chance he gets. I guess a single person who lives close to their job may not spend $65 a week, but for families or people who commute, $65 a week would be very welcomed.

 

I guess I was wrong about only being small vehicles. I have not seen an SUV or truck with 21 MPG though. I really dislike cards. I like to be able to see when I drive and just like all the space that an SUV has.

Re: Amex Blue Cash Denial.

Not to get off subject but I noticed your score moved up rather quickly in just a little over a year, I made some mistakes over the years and my credit took a hit for hit.  I finally paid everything off in 2010 but my scores have been stuck in the mid 600's since Feb.  Any advice?
