This may sound like a really silly question, but I need some advice. I have been offered a job for the coming school year. It takes approximately 40 minutes to get there. It will cost me about $350 in gas every month. I was wondering if anyone knew if there are any governmental funds specifically for this that you can apply for and/or has anyone ever asked the school to supplement your salary for the cost of gas? I'm hesitant to ask because I don't want to press my luck and I realize it can be one of those take or leave it situations. I just need some advice? Please help!!!
