Putting Gasoline Prices in Perspective!

I received this in my email...thought it might make you feel better next time you have to stop and fill up.

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 for $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 BISMOL or NYQUIL!!!!Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...........!

Hi Melissa, did you know that aquafil a product of pepsi gets its water from Lynchburg water system. True it is filtered again, but we have some of the best quality water right from the tap.

I did know that. My well water is the best water around. People come from Roanoke and Lynchburg just to drink it:)

But the thing is, I don't buy nyquil by the gallon, or any of the other things you listed, and if I did, I would not buy 20 gallons at once, nor would I buy that amount every 10 days or so. Nice try, though.

Ahhh...but at the bottom of the email I said to be glad your car didn't run on Nyquil:)

What can I say, I am a glass is half full kind of person. I can't change gas prices, might as well find a way to live with them. Humor helps me.
