That’s a distance of 32km. Assuming a fully loaded $0.50 per km cost to operate a private vehicle, the cost should be $16.00 each way assuming that you are the driver.

By charging $4.00 more than the cost, you’re freeing yourself up to do other things during that time. Is your time really not worth $4.00?




Fully loaded cost is assumed to be $0.55 (or something close) by the IRS. That's $0.33 per km or $10.56 for his trip, saving $10 (or $20 return) each day.


LoL it’s $0.50 in Canada, but I forgot to do the currency conversion. Touché.


Time is definitely extremely valuable, which is why I don’t commute anymore.
