So you think gas is expensive?

I got this as a forwarded e-mail; I usually hate that kind of shit but this one is actually pretty interesting so I thought I'd post it here.

So you think gas is expensive?

Here are some comparisons to put 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!

*this one I wasn't all that crazy about, because it's bottled water and you can get tap water for next to nothing, but it was kind of funny in the e-mail they pointed out that Evian is "naive" spelled backwards...

So anyway, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on Scope, Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Brake fluid, or Nyquil.


If you have never heard of Twitter, you should check it out. It's sort of a microblogging website, but you can update it from IM or your phone as well. I just made an account a few days ago, so add me on there:
