Parking Permit (1 quarter) $254.76
Car Insurance (3 months) $160.75
Gas (700mi @ 25mpg, $2.80/gal) $ 80.00
Interest (18k @ 5% for 3 months) $225.00
So if I buy a car during spring break and keep it on campus for spring quarter, I would pay around $720 more than if I bought it when I graduate. That's a good amount of money, so maybe I shouldn't buy a car just yet...
