    With fuel prices hitting an all time high I thought it would be interesting to see what everyone is paying per gallon.


    Last refuel $1.87 for 93 at Sunoco in Westood, NJ

    When you factor in inflation,wages and the greater fuel economy of modern cars, it cost less to drive a modern car for 100 miles than it did in the 1950s. For example, say in 1950 you were making $0.50 an hour, gas cost $.0.20 a gallon and your car got 12 mpg; you therefore spent around $1.66 to drive 100 miles which took you 3.3 hours to earn. Now, the average income is around $10.00 an hour, gas cost $2.00 a gallon and cars average 25mpg; so, it now cost you $8.00 to drive that 100 miles which took you only 0.8 hours to earn. So, stop complaining because we all can now travel way cheaper than our grandparents could. In any event, I just paid $2.00 a gallon to fill up my M5.
