It's about par for me now EXCEPT for parking costs and non-petrol
auto costs. Put that in the mix and the train is much cheaper at
$9.90 for a daily ticket if I leave after 9am. Just a bit more if I
take a morning peak train, which I try to avoid because of the crush.
I live 50km out of the city. So 10 litres/100 rough figures is about
$1.10x10 = $11.00 for petrol alone return. Add in the true cost of
the km at about $.55/km at the moment I think plus parking and public
transport is definitely a cheaper option IF your destinations are on
Melbourne metro train/tram/bus lines.

Our truest response to the irrationality of the world is to paint or
sing or write, for only in such response do we find truth.
