    Exclamation Script from HTML form


    I am attempting to write a javascript function that calculates the cost of a trip for three different vehicles based on HTML form input (Please see HTML code below). Can you please take a look at my javascript function attempt (below) and provide any suggestions that you might have? Thank you.

        <p> In this lab lets look at some additional things that JavaScript
        can do, such as make calculations with user input from a form. </p>
        <h2>The Problem: </h2>
        <p>I want to take a drive from Colorado Springs to
        Yellowstone Park. The reported distance is 638 miles. I would like to know
        how much the fuel is going to cost me to make this round trip. I have three options
        for my transportation....Assume that gas costs on averate $2.33 per gallon.</p>
        	<li>My Car that gets on average 19mpg...</li>
        	<li>My Motorcycle that gets on average 76 mpg...</li>
        	<li>My Friends hybrid that gets on average 48mpg</li>
        <br />	
      <p>  Fill in the form items below to get the input necessary to make the calculations: </p>
       <p> <label>Distance to be traveled: <input type="text" size = "8" name="distance"
        id="dist" /></label></p>
       <p> <label>MPG for My Car: <input type="text" size = "8" name="mycarMpg"
        id="mycarMPG" /></label></p>
       <p> <label>MPG for Motorcycle: <input type="text" size = "8" name="mtrcycMpg"
        id="mcmpg" /></label></p>
       <p> <label>MPG for the Hybrid: <input type="text" size = "8" name="hybridMpg"
        id="hmpg" /></label></p>
          <input type="button" value="Calculate the cost for each vehicle"
        <br /> <br />
        <table align="center" border="3">
        	<th>Cost with My Car</th>
        	<th>Cost with Motorcycle</th>
        	<th>Cost with Hybrid</th>
        	<td id="mycar">&nbsp</td>
        	<td id="mtrcyc">&nbsp</td>
        	<td id="hybrid">&nbsp</td>
    function CalculateCost(){
    var dist = document.getElementById("dist").value;
    var mycarMpg = document.getElementById("mycarMpg").value;
    var mtrcycMPG = document.getElementById("mtrcycMpg").value;
    var hybridMpg = document.getElementById("hybridMpg").value;
    var mycar = document.getElementById("mycar").value;
    var mtrcyc = document.getElementById("mtrcyc").value;
    var hybrid = document.getElementById("hybrid").value;
    mycar = dist/mycarMpg*2.33;
    mycar = Math.round(mycar * 100)/100;
    mtrcyc = dist/mtrcycMPG*2.33;
    mtrcyc = Math.round(mtrcyc * 100)/100;
    hybrid = dist/hybridMpg*2.33;
    hybrid = Math.round(hybrid * 100)/100;
