I just returned from driving from Northern Texas to Mid-North Carolina and back. My total mileage for the entire trip/vacation was 3,402.4 miles. I used a total of 160.546 gallons of fuel for a fuel economy of 21.2 MPG. The total gas cost was....$459.31!!! That means the next time I travel home, it will be by plane. This is freaking nuts. I didn't add in a hotel room plus food costs.
The most expensive fuel I purchased was in Chapel Hill, NC at $2.97 per gallon for 87 and the cheapest was in Oklahoma City, OK at $2.70 per gallon for 87.
My truck's specs are on the profile, and note I have a cap on the back of my Edge.

Holy moly! Atleast you didn't have to pay over $3 a gallon. I think it's like $3.14ish over here...
ha yup CA sucks in price of gas. freakin i have 2 pay $50 or more to fill up my tank. even i use the safeway club card to get like some cents off a gallon of gas. i just wish that it was back in the old days where my dad says a gallon of gas was like 18 cents. omg it would be a road trip everyday if gas cost that much. HaHa White Castle any1????
Thats the same trip i will be making this summer (Raleigh, NC to Wylie, TX and back.) I would fly but i will be with my family down there for about a month. I don't know what i would do with out my truck for that long.
