Ok TQC, I have a driving situation... I drive my roommate, friend and friends roommate to school everyday (we live in the same apt complex) The parking pass cost me $500 but since I have to be at work at 8am and in class/work until 5pm or 8am everyday I really benefit from the pass. Is it ok for me to ask them to contribute to gas? I mean granted I would be going there anyway but on the same token they're getting a free ride to and from class. I wouldn't ask my roommate for gas money because she drives when we go out (groceries, shopping, etc).
Would you ask your friend & her roommie to chip in for gas? Shouldn't they know enough to offer me money? How can I go about asking them in a nice way?
ETA: My friend & her roommate both don't have cars, so whenever my friend and I go out I drive.
