I despise the Gas Prices. I drive a VW Beetle, Diesel, and it took almost $68 to fill my tank. Diesel right now, is $1.35/L where I live. Thats
like $5..../Gallon? Granted, I get great mileage with my car, I get almost 60mpg highway driving, and 53ish in town. (Perhaps the Performace Chip I
put in my car last summer also aids in the MPG). I work out of town, so most of my KM's are highway...BUT..Filling up my car every 2 weeks, from $50
- $68 is an extra $36 a month, which for a Broke student, DOES make a difference.
I've made the decision to live in Residence next semester, and Park my Car all year. Where I live in the Summer, is different from where I attend
University, so I'll cut my travelling home as well. Driving to University was about 20 minutes, in the city, and my mileage went down signifigantly.
I'm looking forward to walking to classes, and hopefully saving some money so that I can still afford to drive my car.
