(The irony of a Lyft ad on Gas buddy)
Trip 20 miles cleared 3 trips $12 < fuel 2017 $2.28 - rep by 1 gallon $9.72 - : 20 miles 3 trips (you weren't given extra time you only have so much time to do a trip) Average $.65 increase for 2018 $12.65 - $10.03 increase pay of $.32 cents for each gallon of trips. $6 extra per tank on a 20 gallon tank.
Not including IRS depreciation! Don't get me started on that cause it will show terrible results and I know many of you think you're banking. This is increase pay from a year ago to just $.32 pennies for 1 gallon of average fuel of 20 miles per gallon vehicle. And it doesn't really mater how many trips you're doing, this is a crude (oil, pun intended) for fuel difference with increase of %5 compared to a year ago.
*If you're using anything with less gas economy 20mpg, you're NOT making money period. So those crazy people with pickup trucks, you're doing this for other reasons unexplained.
