Just 183 more commutes (at $3/gal) and I will be making money on this adventure. Until I add in some street tires (20 additional trips). And a trunk (15 more trips). At 2 commutes a week, that’s only Halloween 2010.
Then too, there is Healthiness. Replace gym with bike commute and it’s ++$$ by the end of September.
Of course, when gas goes to $4 (Obama wins) or $6+ (McOil drills Pailn) you will be applauding my late foresight.
