Was that money part of the tuition, paid by her grandparents? Like an allowance? As mentioned several times before, money in the girls canon is very flexible. It's there when they don't need it, it's there when they want to spend wildly, and it's not there when broke Lorelai needs someone to bail her out as a plot point. I always presumed that Rory's car (love that it was a Prius) came with a gas credit card at least, and maybe it was a general credit card for all purchases provided by her grandparents. I can't remember if her job swiping cards at the cafeteria was an actual plot point, or if it was just there to give Yale color to the story. Also, as often as her grandfather visited her at the University, I'm sure he handed over cash regularly. I can never look at the Prius without remembering that Emily wanted to give her a car to go to Chilton, which offended Lorelai enormously. When the car served to transport Rory back and forth from Yale to see her mother, suddenly Lorelai was on board with the grandparents giving Rory a car. The perfect job for Rory would have been in one of the many libraries. Weird that no one thought of that. Maybe shelving books was beneath her.
