beckski 12 | 1,617 16 Oct 2009 / #1Work-related costs are soaring upward, during the current period of recession.In the United States gasoline is approximately $3.00 per gallon. Many people are paying a small fortune, merely commuting back and forth to work.Other work expenses may include fees for parking, fast track freeway, uniforms, dry cleaning, day care, meals, union dues, etc.My coworker lives 55 miles from our job. He spends $400 per month in gasoline, $65 for parking permit and $150 in fast track fees. If he didn't purchase fast track, he'd have to spend close to 4 hours total driving time, during his daily commute. He brings his lunch to work, because he says he'd go broke otherwise.What costs do you incur during the course of a regular work day?
