estimating yardage for simple scarves

I'm must getting back into knitting and trying simple patterns for scarves. I like to pick up yarn on sale, not necessarily having a particular scarf project in mind, and I'm not sure how to estimate how much yarn I might need. Although i realize that much depends on the pattern, needle size, etc., i'm hoping some of you might be able to offer some general guidelines so that i'll be sure to pick up enough yarn but not end up with too much more than I need.

Thanks in advance for your suggestions.
