On Monday, Tuesday, and some Wednesdays I travel out to Glenmont. In the morning I take the bus for $1.25. Then I take the Metro train to Glenmont for $1.30. On the way back I take the Metro train during rush hour into downtown costing $3.35. Totaling $5.90 a day. Holy crap! Anyway, if I had a car that averaged 15 MPG/city it would cost me approximately $3.50 in gas each day (at $1.81/gl). However, if I had a car I would also pay over $5.00 a day just for parking in the lot of my own building. I make out way ahead, not even including auto insurance, maintenance, road rage, and fuzzy dice.
