You know it makes sense!

With January's increases in fuel duty and VAT, the cost of driving to work is increasing.
"Petrol prices are already 14% up on this time last year, yet drivers have faced a further 3.5p on a litre recently and the prospect of further rises still to come," said the Culham Carshare Manager. "However, the typical commuter car-sharing every day to Culham saves around £800 a year, while those who manage to fill all their spare seats often save in excess of £2,000.
This is equivalent to a pay rise in times of a pay freeze!
http://www.culhamcarshare.com is a free service which allows employees to find others going their way, so that they can share the trip. Either taking turns with the driving, or giving someone a lift in exchange for a contribution to the fuel costs.
Car-sharing can make a huge difference to your wallet, but there are still many drivers who are unaware of how easy it is to find people to share with. CulhamCarShare is completely free to use, and it only takes five minutes to sign up and search for suitable matches. You could be sharing by tomorrow!
To register for free, go to http://www.culhamcarshare.com – you know it makes sense.
NB: If there is more than one passenger then the cost should be shared on an equitable basis. In order to ensure the driver is not liable for any tax on the monies received from passengers, and that there insurance is valid, it is important that only the running cost of the vehicle are covered by payments, and that no profit is attained by the driver.
