How much money would it cost to drive 5000 miles if my car gets 30 miles to the gallon?
It depends on the price of gas.
If gas costs $5/gallon, it would cost about $835.00 to go 5000 miles when your car get 30 miles to the gallon.
If gas costs $3/gallon, it would cost about $500.
cost = 5000/30 * cost-of-gas
The answer depends on the efficiency of the vehicle in miles per gallon, as well as the price of gasoline. An average automobile goes 20 miles on a gallon of gas. Divide distance by efficiency (1000 miles divided by 20 miles per gallon results in 50 gallons.) If gas costs $3 per gallon, then the fuel used by this car to travel 1000 miles would cost $150 and you would need to fill up twice…
