Gas Prices In Perspective

I know we've all seen this before but I decided to post it, so tomorrow when some of us gas up our cars, we won't grumble quite so much.  Hopefully, the following will make you feel better about those sky high gas prices.

Compared with gasoline:

1..diet Snapple   16oz $1.29 or $10.32 per gallon 

2..Lipton iced tea   16oz $1.19 or $9.52 per gallon

3..Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 or $10.17 per gallon

4..Ocean Spray cranberry juice  16oz $1.25 or $10.00 per gallon

5..brake fluid  12oz $3.15 or $33.60 per gallon  

6..Pepto Bismol 4oz $3.85 or $123.20 per gallon

7..Whiteout correction fluid 7oz $1.39 or $25.42 per gallon

8..Scope mouthwash  1.5oz 99 cents or $84.48 per gallon

9..Evian water  9oz  $1.49  or $21.19 per gallon!  $21.19 for WATER-and the buyers don't even know the source. (by the way, Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

And did you ever wonder why printers are so cheap?  So they have you hooked for the ink.  Someone calculated the cost of the ink at....$5,200.00 per gallon.  (five thousand two hundred dollars!!)

So, The next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope,Whiteout,Pepto Bismol or God forbid PRINTER INK !

Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump.  For my friends in the U.K. sorry I couldn't convert this into your currency...my keyboard doesn't have the proper symbols.

Until next time.....Linda

P.S.  Jools is going to be posting some of their wedding pictures on Friday in honor of their 16th wedding anniversary.  I have one or maybe two I'll be posting, also.
