Pretty good! what are you driving?

Where are you flying? $3,113.24 is an expensive ticket.

Just my typical 2,000 mile (each way) vacation trip from South Florida to a small town in Maine. The $3k includes rental car for a month, something I don't need if I drive. The vehicle was a 2006 VW Jetta. It didn't give me the option of using the diesel model.

The airlines suck, TSA sucks more and renting a car is expensive.
Drive it.
Amount of "CO2 Impact":
Don't care.
