At current gas prices, average yearly income (before tax), and FE: Gas is a minimum of 2.134% of my income per year if I only drive to work and back. It's probably about 3%, but I don't track actual spending so I can only calculate and guestimate.

Back in High School and College, a gallon of gas was 10-15% of my hourly rate; but then it was cheaper I got paid dirt as well. Luckily an hour and a half of OT a week will fill my tank these days. Still, I do miss $0.87/gal gas...
