Carpool to save $240 per year

Although I love my SUV and the room it provides, I miss my compact car and its 28mpg. To keep fuel costs down, my fiance and I take her Corolla whenever possible.

Starting next week, I am going to hitch a ride to work with her on Wednesdays. My job is about 1/2 of the way to her job and she can drop me off on the way.

This carpool arrangement will have two key benefits:
1. I get to spend an extra 40 minutes per week with the most important person in my life. Big Win for Me.
2. I figure to save $5 per week through reduced fuel expense and reduce wear and tear on the SUV.

Next step, I am going to try to figure out how to take the bus at least one time per week.
