14 CFR Part 61.113 Private pilot privileges and limitations: Pilot in command allows a private pilot to accept not less than a pro rata share of operating expenses of a flight with passengers, “…provided the expenses involve only fuel, oil, airport expenditures, or rental fees.” So, splitting the cost of a flight evenly between the pilot and passengers is acceptable if 14 CFR Part 61.113 is followed.
