I sometimes wish I could run my car on water now that the price of gas is so high. But it turns out that water might be more expensive than gas! I read the following list in an e-zine and it caught my attention. It provides a calculation of the price per gallon for a variety of substances. I must say that I have not done any research into confirmation of these listed prices. Have a look.
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
Evian water 9 oz @ $1.49 = $21.19 per gallon (and consumers don't even know the source of this water)
The cost of printers’ ink (as in book printing) is $5,200 a gallon
Aren’t you glad your car doesn't run on Evian, Scope, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or (worst of all) printer’s ink?!
