    Default How Much Do You Spend On Gas For Your Vehicle A Month?

    I'm a non-driver and dh a long distance truck driver is rarely home to drive his car, so we don't spend much on gas for the car each month. He usually fills up once a month for less than $40. We get 10 cents off a gallon of gas for every $50 we spend at the local grocery store. Our last receipt shows we'll get 40 cents off on our next fill up at the gas pump. I'm curious as to how much the rest of you spend on gas per month and if you have any tips to share with others to lower the cost of gasoline.

    I drive back and forth to work every day, and try not to take unnecessary trips. I use about $20 a week, or about $80 a month.

    I used to be able to fill up on that, but now I get just a tad over a half tank every week, and I don't go much of anywhere non-essential.

    I spend around $30 every 2 weeks -- work transport only. Boyf spends about $20 every week, but drives a lot more than I do. He also has a car that gets much better MPG than mine.

    About $350 a month, depending on the price of gas, of course.

    About $120 per month, which amounts to about three tanks of gas.

    We spend 400-600/mo. But we live in the middle of nowhere, one of the prices to pay for that. I've tried to talk dh into driving into town (20 mi/there & back) and taking the bus into work, but so far no luck, he'd rather drive the whole way. Me on the other had, I have been known not to leave home for 3 weeks straight.

    We get about 20 gallons every other week. That's with driving the kids back & forth to school as well as dh driving it to work a couple of days a week and me driving it to school a couple of days a week. We have the same gas deal here too, 10c off per $50 spent at the grocery store (up to 20 gallons) - but I haven't been spending at the grocery store so I have no cents off right now And of course gas has shot up over $3/gallon.


    Dh puts $20 worth in his truck about once every 3 weeks. I drive it to school a couple of days a week and he drives it to work a couple of times a week.

    Dh and I fill up every other week (not a full tank) usually about $23-$25 each time... So, between the two of us it's about $100/month. We don't do unnecessary driving...work, school, groceries, Church.

    My truck and DH's car get filled up about once a week. Normally a fill-up runs around $60 for my truck and $30 for his car. These days we are spending around $360 a month on car gas.

    DH drives to work everyday, drops and picks the kids up from their homeschool classes, takes DS to football practice three days a week. Plus DD has volleyball practice once a week, games twice a week, DS has a football game once a week and it is out of town more often than not, drop off and pick up the kids from church on Wednesdays, then all of the running around we do for this or that. I also take my dog for a car ride about once a day to get us both out of the house.

    I drive to work and back, the bank and shopping once a week, and my mom's once a week, which is a 2 hour drive round trip. I spend around $80 a month and most weeks I don't even fill the tank to full.

    I try to keep my usage way down, if I don't work I only go to town 1x a week. Mine is usually $30-$40 a month and I drive a fuel sucking crew cab dually.

    Now hubby on the other hand, sigh, he drives almost an hour to work, so he goes through $300-$350 a month easily. And then there's the fuel for the tractors, ugh.

    Usually it's about $500 or more a month for us.
