Ok, I know there are a ton of threads on MPG, etc...this is a bit different.

Each time I get gas I write in a little book, the following info.

Date
Station Name
Station Location
Price Per Gallon
Total Cost
Total Number of Gallons
Odometer
Trip Odometer (reset at each fill-up)
Type of Gas

I also note the date and mileage of my mods.

I decided to enter this all into a spreadsheet and see what numbers I come out with. Here is the summary.

OK...so I finished the spreadsheet and re did the numbers...here is what I got.

I'd kill for $2.49 a gallon gasoline.

I haven't seen anything south of $3.15 in a year or so.

$3.09 here. if you think about it though. $0.05 in 20 gallons is only a $1 more. not sure if i worded that right. .05*20=1

You have to remember, that was $2.49 averaged over an entire year. Last July when I bought the X, gas was some place around $2.25.

Right now it's $2.95.

I always thought NJ had cheap gas because of all the refineries.
I would be but are state is pretty much bankrupt so they have high taxes on everything including gas.

Our small business tax just went up from $500 to $1500 a quarter.

Does that mean someone like me who works as a self employed independant contractor has to pay the state $1500 every quarter???
