Don’t I wish

As suggested by Joel at In Theory, I’ve been playing with AAA’s Fuel Cost Calculator, into which you plug Point A, Point B, and your automotive details, and get back how much precious fuelstuffs you’ll be burning and how much it will cost you to do so.

I am not quite as impressed as I might have been, because apparently the calculator assumes I’ll get pre-2008 EPA highway mileage, 28 mpg, which is believable, and that I’ll pay $3.049 a gallon, which isn’t, unless prices take a serious tumble in the next four weeks. (Regular is edging back below $3 here, but if I’m going to get anywhere near the expected mileage, I’m going to have to be using premium, and that’s a good twenty cents higher.)
