There is a matter of donations. It was agreed (in the distant past) that if a person got a ride he or she would give the driver a donation to help pay for gas. The price of gas being so expensive these days I think that everyone would agree that it’s only fair. This is not for short distances but distances of a round trip that involves at least an hour or more of driving (there & back, e.g. 45 mins there 45 mins back). A suggested donation would be $10 per person.
