Default Think Gas prices are High, Check These Gallon prices

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


You will be really shocked by the last one!!!!
(At least, I was..)




Compared with Gasoline......




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 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 , Printer Ink!!!!!




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

Great post I have heard of some other ones that were pretty outrageous too but it also makes me feel better about paying $4.00 a gallon for milk too. Oh just so know that is whole milk, amazingly if they add water it's cheaper. Now tell me how that one works.

Actually my kids need the milk that I buy them. Ecspecially when they were babies so milk in my house is a necessity. Evian water is not but clean drinking water is. And gas does not need to be used as much as some of us use it. Like or not.

Hi BD,
That's what makes this post so funny. Do you really think its harder and more expensive to make Lipton Ice tea than a gallon of gas yet we pay $3 for a gallon of gas and $9.52 for a gallon of ice tea.

no, children do not NEED milk, they can get calcium through many other foods. Bread, OJ, muffins, drink mixers all are fortified with calcium in todays marketplace. as children grow older, they need MORE calcium too, not less, and its women too who need calcium isn't it ?

good information there

DanndD tea is cheap, we brew it every morning and drink it hot and iced. If you buy it premade and calculate it maybe its more expensive than gas, but again tea drinking is not a nessecity of life is it ?

you cannot live and raise your family without gasoline, and that is true for virtually every man and women in the US with extremely rare exceptions
