The accompanying table summarizes Johnny's NPV calculation. He assumed Marsha would take 25 100-mile trips per year, saving $200, plus $1.00 per mile, plus a $40 tip on every trip. Operating costs would be $.45 per mile. The net savings are $295 per trip and $7375 per year. These savings increase with inflation at an assumed rate of 4% per year.
