How much are you paying for gas each month?

Hey Guys I have a 2006 4.0 auto with a 4" lift and 33" I love the jeep!I knew that I was stoping for gas all the time but didn't want to figure up how much I was spending each month on gas untill today...
My jeep payment is not that bad because I put down several thousand so my payment is only 255.00 a month.
Well I did the math and I'm spending $200-225 a month just on gas....
How much are you spending????

Idk, don't care...... It's SMILES per gallon, not miles per gallon that are important to me.




Seriously, probably close to that, but if I drove my Charger every day instead, it'd be more.....

I'm spending way too much, but its a Jeep.
I get between 16-18 MPG if I hit 18 or 19(once) I'm jumping up and down at the pump excited!!! Running about the same lift and tires.

My computer calculations show me running an average of 21.2 MPG.

Normally I pay 2.50-2.56 at Hess but Stop and Shop tempts me with the 2.39 but people are always saying their gas quality is garbage, who knows though

Gas is SUPER expensive here where I live.....$3.15-$3.33 a gallon (depends on where you go) ....It's 61.00 to fill up my tank once to twice a week......UGH, just did the math and my stomach hurts now.....lol

Between $350 & $450 a month.......HOLY HELL

Due to my lack of back window, I haven't been running the AC at all. I just filled up a couple weeks ago - almost 17 gallons - and ended up getting about 18 mpg. I was happy.

The amount you pay depends on how much you drive, also. My office is five minutes from my house, and I'm within 15 minutes of most everything I need to get to. I actually do my 3k oil change about every 4.5 months, since that's how long it takes me to get there. So, I would focus more on mpg than money spent.

It does seem like my Jeep has been more thirsty lately... but again, it's a Jeep. It gets through anything. It's warm and friendly. I can't complain... especially since mine will be paid off in nine months!!!!!

Approx $170 per month here. Daily driver, 50 miles round trip to/from work monday through friday. When the gas light comes on, and I get gas, it's costing me around $34.00 each time @ around $2.56 per gal. This is in the Tulsa, Ok area.

OMG $1,200!! I'm guessing it's on company/government money?

My jeep is my weekend toy so I probably only put around $60 a month into it. My DD gets 30mpg, much more to my liking.

Gas is $2.70-$3.10 here I feel lucky

I filled up today for about $42. I'll last me at least 7 days..so maybe $160-$170 month give or take.

It does not matter how much you pay a month it's how many miles do you get to the gallon and what is the price. I get 18 mpg and burn 5 gallons a day commuting at 2.50 a gallon. Thats 250.00 a month just to get to the office and home.
