    Where I live, gas is pretty cheap. I pay $2.49 per gallon, but I hear it will be going up to $3/gallon soon. It costs me about $30 to fill up my tank. So assuming you have a vehicle that gets good gas mileage (like I do), and gas is relatively cheap - $30 per day on gas.

    Thanks, i was curious because im looking into this coming soon new crowdfund App, that with a $50 donation. I will be able to raise my monthly gas money expenses which will save me according to your estimate.. $25-$30 aday. Which keeps me about 2hr in my pocket driving for uber.

    I drive a 1.5 liter Honda Fit. It gets around 35 mpg. I'll make about $80 on a quarter tank of gas which costs about $6-7. $80 are on days with very little surge.

    I can't imagine why you would think that anyone in the WORLD could give you an estimate of the cost of your gas, without knowing your car, your car's mileage, or the cost of gas where you live. If you know those things, I can't imagine you couldn't figure this out for yourself, at least on a per mile basis.

    Don't forget that depreciation your vehicles with added miles will cost you too.

    Actually, as i researched. There's a national average $20-$30 aday for fulltime Uber drivers. Hey Man, if you're going to reply to a post. Reply with some useful information. Thanks,

    I would like to learn more about crowdsourcing my gas money. I need more money for mints and water. This would help a little bit. Plus I sank like $11 into a new aux cord

    With an economical car driving x I average 10% of my earnings spent on gas. If I earn $150.00 I usually spend $15.00 on gas.

    APrx. 10% of earnings.
    That is my figure also.
    Should be same for any 2liter and below 4 cylinder engine driven reasonably.

    Hey Thanks for the info. Also, the crowdsourcing for gas website. Im hearing would be available February. From my understanding not only would you be able to raise money for your Gas, but vehicle commercial insurance and care note as well. I will try to keep you posted on the launch date

    How many miles did you drive?

    How about posting a question with enough information in order to answer this. A national average of daily usage gives you zero useful information for your individual situation.

    You will drive about 20 miles per hour plus idling for the remainder of the hour.

    The first day you drive will be the only way to tell how much gas you will use.

    I've burned as much or little as $10-$70- in a 12 hour period depending on what vehicle i'm driving and how busy it is and how gas prices were.

    So in a week i'd say $70-$600.

    Not very useful is it?

    What is the average of your net worth and Bill Gates' net worth? Is that a useful figure for anything?

    Averages are rarely useful.

    Wait a minute, you are all getting all wiggly about how much of a moving target gas use is based on various factors while I wanna know why the OP thinks he should get free gas and car expenses through a GoFundMe account.

    I want free ****, too. Not looking as good since Bernie didn't get elected...
