To much to stream in the car on 4g. Not enough to worry about on the home connection.

Listening to Pandora for an hour a day for a month will use about 1.76GB of data.

Here's some approximate numbers for different stream quality. These are just basic calculations (and I could have messed up).

32kb/s = 14MB/hr = 1GB in 72 Hours
64kb/s = 28MB/hr = 1GB in 36 Hours
96kb/s = 42MB/hr = 1GB in 24 Hours
128kb/s = 56MB/hr = 1GB in 18 Hours
192kb/s = 84MB/hr = 1GB in 12 Hours
256kb/s = 112MB/hr = 1GB in 9 Hours
320kb/s = 140MB/hr = 1GB in 7 Hours
