Can Driving an Uber in Great Falls Really Pay the Bills?

I will readily admit that I have never been a "part-time employee" type of person.  Sure, I have had some temporary, in-between-type gigs before, but for 99% of my work life, it's been full-time.  I'm extremely grateful for those opportunities that have been afforded to me.

So, when I saw the following post on Reddit, it started turning wheels in my head:

As those wheels gained momentum, I thought to myself "What would happen if my current employment suddenly ended"?  Would I be able to do something semi-part-time or full-time and still be able to cover the bills?

As Per Usual, Respondents to the Question Gave Us Their 2 Cents

Scrolling in the post to see comments and replies to the original poster, I was surprised at a few of the responses concerning the money one could possibly make.

Considering how many of those winter months we have, that isn't too bad.  But not really "take it home and fry it up in a pan" kind of scratch either.

Other commenters thought that other delivery options might pay better than Uber:

Now we are talking!  That would be a little more doable with those numbers if needed, depending upon your financial situation in its current status.

One Other Small Tidbit To Consider In The Grand Scheme

One user finally addressed what I would consider one of the larger gambles in doing a delivery service.  The gas that your vehicle is going to burn.

The other factors of course are maintenance on your rig, oil changes, tires, and more.  Is it worth it in your mind?
