For comparison purposes

Such as "I have three times as many CDs as my sister," or "I spent 3 times as much money on gasoline this week as compared to last week."

"many" is used with countable objects (such as CD's, oranges, Dollars, etc.), and much is used with quantities which are not countable (such as money, air, water, etc.).

So, you can say "I have 3 times as much money as my sister."  Or:  "I have 3 times as many dollars as my sister."
