For those homebuyers, real estate professionals and others who are particularly worried about gas prices, a commute calculator at Cost2Drive.com can help them to estimate their costs.
The site asks users where they are going and what car they drive, and calculates how much it will cost to get there, how long it will take, and how big the carbon footprint of their trip will be. For longer trips, the site also allows users to compare the costs of flying vs. driving.
The company built a commute calculator for Re/Max that went live on the listing pages of the franchise company’s site in December. The company also launched a Facebook application in March.
