As one who drives a truck and whose wife drives an SUV the high cost of gasoline has made it a fairly painful summer. While gas was down to $3.68/gallon today (about $.50/gallon less than 3 weeks ago) it is still a costly proposition to drive these vehicles. We have talked about getting smaller vehicles but after doing the math I'm not sure that there is much of a savings involved.
Today this story caught my eye Three Reasons Why You Should Keep Your Truck - FOXBusiness.com. It follows the same line of reasoning I used and comes to the same conclusion -- it is probably cheaper to drive your truck at $4.00/gallon than to trade it in and begin payments on a smaller vehicle.
Many will probably argue the point but read the article and do the math. As for me and my house we will keep driving what we already own.
