Fuel price per gallon vs....

All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap;
It just illustrates how outrageous some prices are....

Compared with Gasoline......

Think a gallon of fuel 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 $159 ..... $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 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, Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!

Obviously there is a large price diff between differnt brands or quality or whatever........... but,

Figure $10 for .5oz container (based on what my girl said a decent bottle of nail polish costs)-------------------- $2,560 a gallon.

Expensive perfume could get CRAZY
