companies I have worked at usually pay $0.45 per mile for mileage expenses. my insurance is around $85 a month for full coverage on a fairly new car. I spend probably $30-$40 weekly on gas, it’s usually between $3-$4/gallon. 

 

I agree that it seems like they are not being fair at all. It shouldn’t cost you that much excess just to perform your necessary work duties.

I can’t say anything on the insurance because my parents, thankfully, pay for mine while I’m in school. I believe I am costing them at the upper end in insurance, but that is because I need full coverage since I’m driving a relatively new car. 

As for gas in my area (a high COL area in Pennsylvania) we are currently at about $3.55ish per gallon at the moment. I could be out of date on this info, but I’m a nanny, and the last time I checked the current compensation rate for fuel in my area is around $0.72/gallon. I would definitely say something about this.

ETA: I meant $0.72/mile not gallon, oops!

@Tigerlilybride:  Revenue Canada sets the upper limits for mileage reimbursement in Canada.

It’s 54 cents per km for 2013 and 2014.

Your current mileage is no where near what it is likely costing you. I think when I stopped using my car for work a couple of years ago, we were getting 47 cents per km.

The CAA has a driving cost calculator on their website

I get reimbursed .555 cents a mile.  I would ask about “travel time”   The amount of driving time you use gets summed up by odometer and then you can expense that as well.

I think my insurance is about $110, but my car was totaled last year so my rates are higher than they used to be. I pay about $60 every 2 weeks or so on gas, which is usually around $3.50ish a gallon.
