I guess I don't see how the fuel or mileage reimbuirsement is considered a benefit. Either A) the company provides it for all work-related travel, or B) I claim it on my taxes and get it from that end.. At least this is how it works at my company. Doesn't the word reimbursement (the act of compensating someone for an expense) indicate that it is not a benefit but a loan that has been provided by the employee? Little wonder these "benefits" are not seen as having an impact on employee satisfaction..

The pump price are just insane. With a full size SUV, you can spend as much as $100 on a round of full tank gas.

Considering the widespread availability of fuel-efficient hybrid cars today, maybe the reason why vehicle benefits can hardly be felt is because the costs even out in the end.
