Here is the math. For what I pay in gas at $5 a gallon, I can pay TWO Ram payments.


5x28=$140...A week.

$140x4=$560 a month. Even when I had a truck payment, It was $450 a month...so not even in the same ballpark. No matter which way you slice it, $560 is a hit in the wallet every month for 99% of people, its a noticable change from $3 a gal ($336 per month).

Will I be driving my truck to the point where I use a tank of gas a week? Absolutely not. She is getting parked. Not going to drive her to work when I have a perfectly good 4-banger in the driveway.
