Jeep fixes...average of $50 per month
*Car insurance, $100 per month I think
*Tuition of around $1k per month average
*Rent $675 per month
Internet for $60 per month
Girlfriend fees: $30 per month barely keeps her happy...usually more
Misc supplies: $20 per month.

Its expensive to live. Starred items my parents cover (though technically my college savings is used for tuition, my parents just take care of it for me and have promised to continue paying when it runs out granted I graduate with a 3.0)
120 total a month for gas? Wow.. Thats a weeks worth for me... Spend anywhere from 120 to 180 a week in gas.

Bonus of living on campus and having a job that i work from home..And using the girlfriends car for groceries and things...so I guess if you think about it even with girlfriend fees I come out better when you figure gas lol

My gas bill for the jeep motorcycle car is about $500 a month, add me being at the lake every weekend on the boat/boat slip, and that's another $150-$200 a week so summer gas bills are over $1000 a month ha

My girl cost me about 40k a yr. I Jus ask for cash when I need something, usually car parts for the jeep or my truck, and make sure xbox live is paid every year. On the other hand, the kids are a great tax write off, so I save a lil $$ there!

$20-50 for food and drink (depends on the week)
$30-60 a month perceptions
$ 20-40 going out with people a week

I haven't been in a relationship since I became a car guy. Can't afford both and, frankly, cars/Jeeps > women.
