Gas prices compared to........

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

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.
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.

I bet "Naive" is not far from what was discussed when the bottler was planning to market their water. I can just imagine several people around a table tryng to come up with a name. Someone says something like people are so naive, buying water at a premium. Suddenly, someone else says yes thats it, only lets spell naive backwards and call the water Evian. Bingo, we now line up to pay $21.19 for gallon of water that costs us 3 cents from our faucet. Sometimes, we only use our heads to hold our ears apart
