Driving to work in my car that gets only 32mpg would cost me... a little over $1. A more efficient car would be less. Commute time is ~20 minutes.

So the cost for fuel is the same, and the bike takes longer to get places.

Don't get me wrong, I like biking. I plan on biking to work often if I am able to do so this summer (may be switching jobs), and I often go mountain biking on tuesday nights and weekends.
