 Payment, insurance & gas? Include secondary vehicles too. Do you know what percentage of your income this is?

 About $700.  One car payment.  Insurance on 3 cars, but gas for only 2.

we paid off our new car within 3 months and bought my husband's truck with cash.  we HATE making car payments!  For gas it's probably $200 a month tops, and then about $100 a month to insure both vehicles.  So less than 10% of our income goes towards the vehicles.

Zero payment, Insurance is $92ish a month, gas, about $150. So, $242 a month. Based on gross income, it's roughly 18% or so of our income....I think....IDK, I'm not that great at math. lol
