Not surprising. If/when I ever start the full time job I will buy a small car for the commute and leave the full-size GMC pickup in the garage.
We're going to DE this weekend helping my sister move from Sterling, VA. (One of the hazards of owning a pickup, hard to say "no" to family.) With the truck loaded and towing a 6 x 12 U-haul trailer I expect to burn over $150 in fuel for a 350-mile round trip. If I'm lucky I might get 12 mpg.
I heard the call to do nothing. So I answered it.
