The Price of ???
Think a gallon of gas is expensive?
This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.
Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ..........$9.52 per gallon
Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 .... $10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ......... $10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ......... $33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 ... $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 .. $123.20 per gallon
Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ..... . $25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 .....$84.48 per gallon
And this is the REAL KICKER...
Evian water 9 oz $1.49.
$21.19 per gallon!
$21.19 for WATER
and the buyers don't even know the source.
(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)
Ever wonder why computer printers are so cheap?
So they have you hooked for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the ink at................
you won't believe it...................
but it is true.........................
$5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)
So, the next time you're at the pump,
be glad your car doesn't run on
water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil
or God forbid, Printer Ink!!!!!
Bottled water $6 for 750mL at the Hilton. And its not even imported Frog water. Rip off!!!
Water from tap in bathroom = free (well I suppose you have to add in the room costs $365 a night).
Better start drinking hey.
For our US friends who think they've got it bad...
I've just worked out that my local petrol station (gas station) in London, Super Unleaded Petrol (Premium Gas) costs $8.03 (US Gallon) compared to what the US pays at average of $3.
about the same here. if you american slackers dare to complain once more...

Hell, heres my argument for why I need cheap gas. I need to fuel my 300 hp mustang, and my 275 hp truck, and my 250 hp boat. Hell I burned up 100 bucks alone this weekend in my boat. Its getting so I dont even try and fill up its 120 gallon tank anymore.... I figure I must burn up at least one medium size dinosaur a month.
