One option I’ve used is carpooling. If you can split the gas cost with even one other person, you’ve just reduced the cost by half. Get two or three people and you can end up with a net cost under $1.50/gallon/person.
Not sure who to hike with? Look for hiking clubs on Meetup or Facebook, or check out the AMC. Or heck, start your own! You can also post here in the forums and coordinate with other challengers.
EDIT: I wanted to add that your idea of heading up to do three peaks in a weekend is another great idea. Camping and hiking to save $$.
