cost to drive from Oklahoma to Florida...

I just thought this was mildly amusing. Take it or leave it, I guess.

I recently watched 5 buses from an Oklahoma school district sell for about $2700 more or less each on I was mildly amused to see those same buses turn up (with the exact same pictures no less) for sale on another certain website in the $5400 price range! Now, I believe in capitalism and principals of supply and demand, but holy crap...200% markup!!!! So that leads me to ask the question: "How much it costs to drive a bus across half of the US?" I know there are several who have done it, and that it depends on motor, trans, and maintenance...

I thought someone might be interested in this factoid.

Probably $350-$450 in fuel plus $200 to pay a kid to drive it one way.
