Green Per Diem: Cost to Drive

with one comment

I’ve been in trip-planning daydreams for a few weeks now. Recently, Mr. SensibleKitty and I were talking about a trip to Atlanta but couldn’t go because of the aforementioned fuel crises.

This will be helpful when we can afford to get out of town, though. Cost2Drive takes your mileage, gas tank, car make and model into consideration to calculate your total fuel expenses for a trip. I especially like this fun fact plastered right on the front page:

A trip from New York to Los Angeles costs $678 in a Hummer H3 and $219 in a Toyota Prius


Do you ever wonder what it costs to drive somewhere? We do and so we created to help people quickly and easily discover how much it costs to drive anywhere in the US.

Here’s the specs on our -someday-in-the-future trip to Atlanta:


  • Total Distance 208
  • Driving Time 3 hrs 35 mins
  • Fuel 18 Gallons
  • Average Gas Price $3.38
Miles Driven Gallons Gas Price Cost
Buncombe Co., NC 0 9.03 $3.38 $30.51
Atlanta, Ga 207
Now, if only we can figure out a way to calculate the BENEFITS OF WALKING. Or translate that Cost2Drive into stats about environmental impact… which of course is ultimately the real ‘cost’.
