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 $099 ........$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.


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.

interesting
except people are not having to buy milk or brake fluid or vicks at 21 an 23 gallons at a time, as you would with an automobile.
vicks, brake fluid, an whiteout should last a little longer than a tank of gas in a vehicle, unless your sniffing the whiteout then you might think you could compare gasoline to vicks, or brake fluid.

I'm pretty sure he knows that our cars don't run on that stuff, he's just stating that people should quit bitching about gas prices.
