Calculate Your Driving Cost For Any Trip

Posted October 16, 2008 by Chuck Posted in: Personal Finance

I came across a nifty little website today called Cost to Drive. It calculates the cost of gas for your car trip so you can get an idea of how much you will spend in gas for the journey.

You simply input your starting point, destination, and your car year/model and it will do the calculation for you. It uses the distance of google maps, the average mpg of your car type, and the average price of gas in that area. Its obviously not 100% accurate, and also on some trips I tried it did not factor in tolls (perhaps an idea for a future enhancement) which can certainly add up as well. But overall its a fun and easy tool to get a rough estimate of gas costs.
