i am going to florida with 6 friends. the house is already paid for and we plan to eat food from the house most of the time to save money...how much would you recommend for gas (from mississippi to jacksonville) , food, alcohol, general spending money?

I'd say that's 1,200 miles round trip. Say it's a 12 gallon tank at 25mpg that's 300 miles per tank. That's 4 fills at $3.80 or so a gallon, divided by 6 is about $31 dollars per person in gas. I'd plan for $20 a day in spending, and $20 a day for drinking (since guys will buy you drinks). So $40 a day x 5 days = $200. Plus the $31 in gas is $231. Budget for this but bring $300-$350 just to be safe. Have fun!0
