Interesting Gas Usage Info
I found this site where you can find out the gas mileage of your car, its environmental impact, and, how much it will cost you annually to drive your car. US only.

Scroll down The first link goes all the way to 85

KnittingGuy, my dh only gets 25 miles on his bike to the meal (which happens to be one way to his job!) but 100 of those types of miles each week sure save on $!

That's great! 25 miles each way isn't a bad bike commute at all. Does he ride a standard road bike or a recumbent? The recumbent seats are a LOT more comfy for that sort of thing, not to mention the bents are faster.

When I'm home off the road my bent is my sole means of transportation and I love it.
