a day or per day?


People, I have a question. What�s the correct "a day" or "per day"? If both are correct, is there any different in usage?

I think you can you "per day" in a hotel for instance: "The room costs $60 per room, per day"

"per" means for each  and is used for more finanicial, measurement, or business aspects.
($4 per gallon = $4 for each gallon) ($75 per day) (45 miles per hour)
"a" is a more common usage.  (four times a day)
Hopefully that helps!
