[pct-l] Making a trail budget

I'm starting my preliminary planning for a PCT thru-hike next year and am trying to put together a budget so I'll know how much money to save.  I pretty much know what I expect to spend on gear before hitting the trail, but I'm wondering about on-trail expenses.  When I did the AT in 2006, the general wisdom was that a hiker could expect to spend about $1.00-$1.50 per mile.  Is there a similar figure for the PCT?
