Well, it wasn't that difficult to add another column to the California SUV Fill Up Index to demonstrate why you see a few less frowns on peoples' faces when they are buying gasoline these days.
Since we normally pay cash, doing some quick math to calculate a dollar amount that will come close to a fill up without having to walk back inside to get change, it has been quite a different experience to most times only require a single $20 bill to do the job.
- $20 / $1.70 per gallon = 11.8 gallons
Anyway, what you see below explains why you see more Hummers on the road and more SUV owners with a bounce in their step when they pull into the gas station.
