  • Ride offer - Tues Aug 5th from LA area

    I'm heading to Vegas late afternoon/evening on August 5th from Redondo Beach.

    If you need a ride, PM me.

    Canceled. I'll be flying in rather than driving.

    With these damn gas prices, I calculated the costs and flying wins by a mile.

      I'm really shocked. Estimating $160 in flight costs versus about 560 miles round trip at $4 a gallon, your vehicle would have to be down at 14mpg to break even.

      (This, of course, ignores wear-and-tear on the vehicle but it also ignores transportation between to and from both airports and possible parking costs.)

      I wonder because I'm in a similar situation.

        Wear and tear of the vehicle is a big part of it... that and the time for the drive.

        Although, the long drive is great for thinking about life.
