The price of Gas versus ?


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!

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 God forbid, Printer Ink!

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

Oh Avgas in Greenland is now over $23.00 a Gallon

The differance is that you don't consume 20 gallons of Vick's Nyquil per week.

That is incorrect. Evian comes from the Cachat Spring near Lake Geneva. The backwards spelling thing is dumb as there are plenty of other brands of bottled spring water that are priced higher.

HOLY F#CKING SH!T!!! I was hoping it would stay steady around $3.75/gal or so for a month, but damn. $3.95/gal is the magic number in Dayton right now. :puke:

Still pretty cheap gas. Societies are known to function with gas prices of $9/gallon.

Yea, but no place I would like to live!!!

I have Been to some them Societies Trying to sleep and diesel and 2 stroke's with poor exhaust systems out side of your room window will drive you mad and the tiny cars you just wait for 10 clowns to come out of them.

Also they all have real bad horn honking syndrome.

But not countries as widely driven (miles) as we do here in the states. Lots of sprawl here.

In 1982, I was paying $1.50/gal for gas, made $30K/yr, and lived in a 90K house. A postage stamp was 10 cents and bottle of Coke 25 cents. How arethose ratios doing to day?

Yea, few of my trucker friends are getting ready to get out of trucking (Owner/Operators) the only one's getting any business are Large Corporations as they have better fueling contracts etc.
