the price of operating your vehicle. To do this, we need to collect three types of data – our fixed costs, our variable costs and our usage.
A – What are your fixed monthly car expenses? (1 point)
add up all the payments that you must make
If you only pay insurance once a year then divide that number by 12 to add it to your monthly fixed expenses.
You don’t have to share the specifics if you would prefer not to–you can just give the total.
B – What are your variable monthly car expenses? (1 point)
Add up your variable expenses—you spend each month on variable expenses
(gas, oil, washer fluid, car washes, etc.).
C – What is your total cost per month? (1 point)
Add your fixed and variable costs together.
D – Approximately how many miles do you drive a month? (1 point)
All of the discussion in the media is about the price of gasoline per gallon, but to calculate your personal cost, a more relevant statistic for you is your cost per mile. That is one of the things that you should consider when you decide whether or not to drive home for lunch.
E – Divide C by D to figure your cost per mile. (1 point)
Pay attention here. If the money is more than the miles, the cost is over $1.00 per mile - if the miles are more than the money, the cost is under $1.00 per mile. What is your cost per mile?
Surprised? One student did the calculations wrong and got that she was spending $316.00 a mile. That would go way beyond surprised!
F – What changes might you make to save money on your total car expenses? (1 point)
Another student lived in a big city and only used the car on weekends. When he finished the calculations, he cut a deal with a local car rental company, sold his car, and wound up renting a very nice car every weekend for less than he was spending on a car of his own!
