    I giggled:





    Price of Gas
    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



    < BR>
    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...

    And - If you don't pass this along to at least one person,
    your muffler will fall off!!




    Makes one stop and think, doesn't it?

    Well strictly speaking you can't really get a gallon of gas. Gallon is really a measure used for fluids. For gas you're really looking for a measurement of volume I would have thought.
