Does anyone here carpool to work up to 8 miles away?

If so, how much do you think is a fair price to pay for gas each week to car pool with someone that distance the way our economy and gas prices are today? (16 miles round trip)

  • Don't forget to add in wear and tear on the car. There's more to commuting than just gas.

  • With the cost of the vehicle alone (insurance, repairs, etc.) I have heard that we should pay for the full cost of the gas being used.
