gas prices and others: interesting thoughts…

Subject: Compared with
Gasoline…..

Think a gallon of gas is expensive? (In the US,
gas is averaged at $2.50 US/gallon – Aug. 2005)

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.)

So,
the next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on
water,
Scope, or Whiteout, or God forbid Pepto Bismal or Nyquil.

Just a
little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the
pump…
