As petrol prices increase and my life as a jobless Uni bum plumets further into debt due to  increasing expenditures. I have taken up the new interest of catching the 7.50am bus to town every morning. Costing me a total of $1.80 every trip/I put this question to my bloggie bloggers.

Is it cheaper or even worth travelling using the bus system?
Sure enough the bus timetable has been updated for the St Leonards area. (which is great!) when I was younger (pre car) it was worth having a car just because the bus only ever came every two and a half hours or so. Now, with the new system you can bet there is one every hour.

FANTASTIc! but is it cheaper?

Does it cost me about the same in petrol and therefore should i just come in my car?
With the cost of parking and the cost of registration on top of petrol prices...

should i continue catching the bus for $1.80 and loose about half an hours extra sleep.. plus all the waiting time (i had forgotten how annoying it is waiting for the bus, especially in winter) or should i just get on with it and but that extreemly expensive petrol in my poor never service car?

remembering then I also have to catch the bus back... ah yes another $1.80.
