Keep your chin up, your so close to graduation, I know you can make it! By my calculations you have about $80 left each month to cover other expenses, such as gas for that car, clothes, etc. You need to create a tight budget and really discipline yourself over the next semester.
One option you should seriously consider is looking for work at your college. If you find something at school it will likely have very low pay, however, you won't have any additional gas or parking costs as you can simply before, between, and just after classes end and it could get you some more professional office experience, depending upon the job.
I recommend that you stop by your career center first and talk to one of their staffers. Do everything they suggest - take a career placement test(s), build a resume, look through all of the available job listings they have. Often times you can find good part-time work or paying internships to get you through if you just keep your eyes open and keep looking.
Also, swing through the financial aid office there and ask them if there is still time to get into a work/study program for the last semester and explain your financial situation. It may be too late in the game, but you will never know if you don't ask. And, to keep things in perspective - that's all those folks are there for - to help you out!
Also, make sure you ask at both offices if they know of any offices on campus that are looking for help. Talk with your advisor as well. Just get the word out that your looking and don't be afraid to ask for help - someone famous once said, "Be bold, and mighty forces will come to your aid."
