Is it worth your Time and Money?

You go grocery shopping at your favourite store, but then your husband points out that his favourite beer is 4 dollars cheaper if you buy it at another store. How much will it cost on fuel to buy cheaper-priced items at another location?

- average miles per gallon of your vehicle
- price of one gallon of gas
- distance, home to store A
- distance from store A to B
- distance from store B to home
- a price difference of item(s) that makes you go to store B
*(money you save on the product(s))*

- cost of fuel driving one mile
- fuel cost for a shopping trip at store A
- fuel cost including store B in your shopping trip
- savings
*(a negative amount = loss)*

Your average miles per gallon is 24 The price of one gallon of fuel is $3.84 Distance from home to store A is 9.6 miles Distance from store A to store B is 3.6 miles The distance from store B to home is 11.4 miles Going to a different store because the items are cheaper saves you $1.85

First, calculate fuel cost per mile;

3.84 ÷ 24 = 0.16

It cost 0.16 to drive one mile.

Calculate the cost of gas to drive to store A

9.6 * 0.16 = 1.536

The cost of fuel driving from home to location A is $1.54

Calculate the cost of driving from location A to B;

3.6 * 0.16 = 0.576

The fuel cost for driving from A to B is $0.58

Calculate the cost of driving from location B to home;

11.4 * 0.16 = 1.824

The cost of gas for returning home from location B is $1.83.

Including location B in your trip will cost a total of 1.54 + 0.58 + 1.83 = $3.95 in gas,

adding 3.95 - 3.08 = $0.87 to the gas cost.
