Cars and gas

March 25, 2011 9:24 pm

I just got around to putting gas receipts from the last two years into my spreadsheet so I could look at trends in fuel efficiency and gas prices.
My fuel efficiency seems to have leveled out at about 30 miles per gallon. I seem to no longer have a seasonal swing due to cold weather like I did while in Utah. The little peaks are road trips where we get better mileage while driving long stretches on the highway.
Gas prices were pretty level for awhile at the $3/gallon mark. I'm still astounded at the massive collapse in prices in 2008. Prices were down to $1.50/gallon! But we seem to have put a stop to that. Gas prices are back up to $4/gallon here. Hopefully the rain will stop for the season soon so I can try riding my bike a few times a week to save some money and get some exercise.

  1. Grandpa Hurst would be so proud of you. When we cleaned out his house after Grandma died, we found charts of his utilities for the last 50 years, I think.
