Assuming you drive one, of course. When we lived in the LA area and I was driving 30+ miles each way for work, I tanked up my car about 5 times every 2 weeks. That's 130 times a year. In Fresno, not going very far regularly, I tanked up a total of 13 times for 2012. That's it!!! My car is 6 years old and has under 25,000 miles. Probably one of the few good things about living here--you don't have to use much gas.
