tractive resistance in terms of fuel con

121 ton mile and on concrete roads .'SI

According to these figures' dirt
reads require 50 per cent more gaso
line than do giavel reads and 120 pc

gravel roads require -17 per cent more
than conc.cte roads.
The daily saving, on this piece of
ioad in gasoline alone at 21 cents per
gallon would be as follow. :
Gravel vends over diit roads . .$ 7.9G
Concrete roads over dirt roads 11.03
Concrete over gravel rpads....... 5.17
Assuming this to be an average ot
traffic for 300 days in the year the
difference in the cost of power over
one mile of road Would be-as follows:
Gravel roads' over dirt roads .. $2 388
Concrete roads over gravel roads 1,551
Concrete roads over dirt roadfi...3$09
The cost of gasoline per ton-mile at
21 cents per gallon over dirt roads is
1.5 cents, ever gravel roads, 1 cent,
and over concrete roads, 0.68 cents.
At $'1,500 per mile, the saving on
gasoline alone will pay for g.avcling
