You're probably not far from being right. I'm getting ready to travel to PA from CA and guessing my gas will be about $1000-$1200 if I take it really easy.
Just think of the people in Kenya and Uganda. Petrol (gas) there costs around the same as here in Oz - about $1.50 per litre (roughly $6 per gallon.) Difference is, most people there live on between $2 and $5 per day.
I'm sure probably more than the price of gas.I imagine the extra baggage fees for a u-haul trailer would be quite prohibitive.
I have just paid for the flights for my Malaysia trip (see prayer requests). As well as the actual fare, the detailed receipt lists:I'm sure probably more than the price of gas.
Have you heard the latest: Airlines are going to soon charge extra for a seat to sit in while flying, and there will be a surcharge on air to breath.
