Save Money as a Green Commuter
How much could you save by commuting to work?
According to the 2007 edition of AAA's annual "Your Driving Costs" study† , drivers spend between $6,217 and $9,380 per year on average (based on 15,000 miles per year). The study is based on an extensive list of factors including gasoline, maintenance, tires, financing, depreciation and insurance.
The calculator below will allow you to estimate how much you could save just in gas and permit expenses by choosing an alternative to commuting to work alone.
