If by fuel you mean hookers, then then my answer is yes.

Also I spend about 350-400 a month on gas and about 400 every 2 weeks on food (for myself)
Why so much on food, gym/exercise I eat horses.

Definitely more on food.

I spend no more than $50-60/month on gas. I drive a 2007 Civic sedan, summer consumption is 5.9L to 6.3L/100km and I drive around 700km per month.

I spend about £300-350 on petrol a month, but run a restaurant so my food bills are quite low!

However I can't be bothered to cook all the time so if we eat out, we can blow £60-70 quite easily on food.

I spend around $50-100 a month depending on how often I drive. yes that's right it's nice to live out in a small town rather than a busy city. I spend about $400 a month on food.

Are you a plant that lives off sunshine and carbon dioxide or something? Or do you grow / hunt your own?

I spend more on fuel; anywhere from $350 to $450 a month, and about $160 to $200 on food per month, and another $100 on bridge tolls. I get a steady 26 mpg in the car, but with a 90 mile per day commute it goes really fast. Not to mention I also have to use 93 octane. I try to offset that by riding my bike in when I can, when the weather is good. Hoping to buy a more fuel efficient car at the end of this year.

Are we taking international opinions here?

Switzerland - we spend 750CHF on food a month (that's the budget, includes restaurants and whatnot) and about 60CHF per month fuel.

Fuel is cheap here - food really isn't.

My mom makes my food. And I'm proud of that fact.

I think the better question would be : How much would fuel prices have to go up before you stopped driving?
