Used 1104 L [292 gal US] fuel, traveled 26,000km [16,160 miles] todate in 2012. At around $1.10/L that is $1214.4/year to date. About 10 months out of 12.
And I drive more than average, mostly Highway, my aim is at less than $1000/year.

Total receipt price of my petrol from 1st Oct 2011 to 1st Oct 2012 is 973 which is $1570 USD at today's exchange rate. Mrs A's fuel is 90% company so based on the receip price about 194 is for family use = $313 USD.

So the total is $1883 as a family.

I own no truck, have no incidental need of a truck and therefore do not keep a truck at home for "hauling stuff" or "towing", these are the only cars we own.

Despite paying 7.663 USD/gallon for gas, I'm still below half the US average at 1924 USD (1 year period); some 15000 miles, and just one car to do them all.

Do the figures for fuel include non-transport uses ? For example a lot of murricans use petrol lawn mowers or power tools of some kind but most (here in Blighty anyway) use corded or rechargeable tools and plug in electric mowers.

Under 1000$ for 2 cars. Not too bad, closer to my goal of lawn ornaments every day.

$345 and 13000 miles. I don't count the electricity I used because I replaced most of our incandescent bulbs in our house with led's and cfl's so our electricity bill has gone down about $20 per month even with plugging in the Volt.

Year to Date, $1889.77 and have traveled 15906.6 miles. This is split between an 08 matrix and 02 F250. I suspect we'll easily hit $2500 by years end since were driving the truck south next week, we're scared of snow
