2008, so I can start making comparisons between my 2006 and 2007 data.
2006 - 46 tanks of gas
2007 - 41 tanks of gas (10.87% fewer)
2006 - 462.026 gallons
2007 - 431.259 gallons (6.67% fewer)
2006 - $1,099.90 total cost
2007 - $1,090.30 total cost
2006 - $2.378 average cost/gallon
2007 - $2.529 average cost/gallon (6.36% higher)
2006 - 36.26 average mpg
2007 - 37.87 average mpg (4.43% higher)
2006 - 16,742.3 miles driven
2007 - 16,338.7 miles driven (2.4% fewer)
This is interesting data. My reduction in gallons used, and increase in
fuel economy, pretty much evened out the increase in gas prices.
Even if I refueled today, my total miles driven for the year would be
under my 2006 total. I think this potential for error is eliminated due
to the fact that my first tank of 2006 was on January 11.
I still drive lots of miles to and from work.
But I drive smartly and consistently, which results in fuel economy
higher than the reported EPA ratings, and I do my best to maintain the
car in safe and efficient working order.
Here's to an even better 2008!
