About 15-20 miles a day, downtown Grand Blanc for work.

A week add around 100 miles for RateMyStudentRental meetings & events.

Another 100 ish on weekends to Dearborn.

Average of $60-$80 in gas a week.

BUT

In April-June, I will drive probably 50 miles a week, because I am at school and haev no need to drive far. Ocasional trip to Alpena.

I usually do about 56 a week. Hopefully it stays that way after my one job is up.

34.2 x2 per day x5 per week = 342 miles / week minimum.

divided by 27 mpg average = 12.667 gallons per week x $4.50/gallon anticipated (premium unleaded) = $57.00 week in gas

around 600 miles a week if I'm not working a weekend. I'm in the 100-120 mile round trip club as well. I like driving the truck but not at 10mpg @ 60mph. The car is a little better netting me 26mpg @ 70mph and still having v8 under teh hood.

I need to bring my bike up but I don't want to store it outside, as right now I'm bouncing around apt's, trying to decide on a house.

Home to office mileage is 320 per week. Car burns 1 gallon of gas each way.
I figure that if I maintain the ratio of burning a gallon of gas per leg of my commute, I'll be fine.
