Realized that with my new job I’m at $500/month for gas. Starting to seriously consider a hybrid or electric but damn they expensive. Either way might just need something more reliable than my 320k+ car.

Whatchya driving, do you like it, and why?

    To be honest, I have no idea what gas costs, and as such what it translates to.

    And yeah, I am from Europe.

      Lucky. It’s $3.20 a gallon (around $0.85 a liter), were I live in the southeast US, drive around 60 miles a day at 25mpg, so a generally around $7-8 day (I drive an older car, and don’t live too close to work), or $40-50 a week. Plus around 5-7hrs worth of driving a week.

        Lmao it’s about $2.20 a liter where I live. 0.85 is a dream number here.

          The US both pretty heavily subsidizes gas and we produce the most. It’s required to get around in all but a few places in the US after all. A lot of us would actually kinda prefer trains and trams, but most of the US is rural or semi rural, so that isn’t often an option.
