If you drive your own car, each mile you commute costs an estimated $1.52 per mile per working day. The $1.52 includes gas, car payment, insurance and vehicle maintenance.
Commuting adds up quickly. A mile of commute costs $397 each way per year. Cutting 5 miles out of a 10 mile drive to work is just like giving yourself a $2 per hour raise. Bonus: you’ll also get 20 minutes of your day back.
