Distance to Mars

The new value is 66.53 (plus or minus 0.62) kilometers per second per megaparsec (3.26 million light-years). That means in 9.8 billion years the distance between cosmic objects will double.

So, the distance from Earth to Mars is increasing at roughly 5 metres per year.

Is this being factored into the fuel estimates for forthcoming expeditions?
