I am as happy as anyone to see the cost of gas drop in the recent months but it’s funny how it dropped almost immediately after we cut our last build. For each release Streets and Trips has a default value used in calculated fuel costs – in S&T 2007 it is $3.15!!! In light of the recent price drops $3.15 seems a little on the high side . This value can be seen (and changed) in Route | More Options dialog.
According to the AAA’s Fuel Cost Calculator website the Pacific Coast region pays the most for gas. Hey…you get what you pay for ;-) I suppose in a few years we’ll all be wishing we were only paying $3.15/gallon.
