I listed my car for sale yesterday.
The gas prices here are pretty high. In Mammoth we are now at $4.70. Heading towards Tahoe they are at $4.99.
I'm not selling because of the gas prices though, I have just realized that it's just as easy to get pretty much anywhere for the same price or less than owning your own car.
It now costs $100 for me to do round trip to LA, plus I pay around $300 for car payment and insurance. That's $400 a month. Mammoth has a free bus system. Round trip to LA is only around $100- $150. If I really needed a car for a day, a car rental is only around $60 for a day including the insurance. Just doesn't make sense.
For $400 I can fly round trip to LA twice, and have an extra $100 to blow on whatever and I save on the 24 hours of driving and get it down to about 8 hours of travel time.
And I should be getting around $2000 more than what my payoff amount which yeah, it sucks that I've invested all this money, but it really just isn't worth it and I can think of some awesomeness to use that $2000 on.
