1. Determine number of miles from El Paso to Las Vegas.
2 .Determine number of miles per gallon your car gets.
3. Divide answer to question #1 by the answer to question #2.
4. Multiply answer to question #3 by price per gallon of gasoline.

If you can average 25mpg then expect to use about 30 gallons.

LV - EL Paso is about 730 miles

Dodge caliber gets about 24-27 highway miles (use 25 miles per gal)

730/25 = 29.2 (use 30 as an even #)

30 gal x \$3.30 per gal (reg unleaded) = \$99

Thanks for this! I budgeted \$160.00, so I should be good.
