Now im arguing the pro for this debate and that means i am for driving an extra 15 miles for a quality sandwich
The pro will be arguing why going down the street to McDonalds would be more beneficial than the pro

Pro

I believe that driving the extra 15 miles while more costly on gas, would benefit more because the sandwich would be healthier than McDonalds
and i believe health is certainly a more important than an extra dollar or 2 in gas

I would like to thank my opponent again.
Now To My Arguments

Health and Variety
McDonald's does have some health Conscious Menu Items, Plus they have a bigger Selection of food in General than
Corner Bakery. McDonald's has also done well in taste testing

Economy
Corner Bakery is slightly expensive with meals averaging 10 USD.
Plus the drive is 30 miles round trip an with a good car That's at least 1 gallon of gas maybe two.
An According to Agoura Hills Gas Prices The cheapest gas cost 3.87.
So 10 USD for food Plus 5 USD for gas. Which equals 15 USD.

At McDonald's(Which is famous for it's "Dollar Menu") You could buy a multitude of items and still be healthy if that's a factor to you.
