Ever wonder how far your money really is stretched when the rubber meets the road? Try using this Miles per Dollar Calculator (MP$) created by UnfocusedBrain – a hodgepodge blog of anything and everything.
This calculator will even tell you how much hard cash you’re spending to get back and forth to work. Try this, use Google Maps (http://www.google.com/maps) to calculate many miles it takes to get to work, running errands, taking kids the to practice, and then back home to see how much you spent in fuel.
I plugged $3.45/gallon of gas into the calculator with getting 25 MPG and it comes to be 7.25 miles per dollar. For someone who lives about 20 miles away from work, I'm spending $5.52 to and from work. Ouch!
Take a look at mass transportation, biking, carpooling or walking to help lessen your carbon footprint and keep the money in your wallet.
