The Chicago Tribune website has created a Gas Gouge-o-Meter.
Enter the amount of miles you plan to drive, the current cost of fuel, and your car’s M.P.G. rating, and the calculator spits back how much it will cost you to take that trip.
I learned that with gas at $4.15 a gallon (which it is around by us) it will cost Heather and me about $51.80 to drive to see her parents in Findlay, OH. And that’s before I factor in the price of the tolls in Indiana and Ohio
A year ago, when fuel prices hovered around $3.15, it would have only cost us $39.31
