    How Expensive IS Gasoline?

    You all may have received thia, as it made the email rounds not long ago, but I liked it so I thought I'd post it:

    Subject: You Think A Gallon Of Gas Is Expensive?

    Makes one think, and 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
    - 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 Heaven forbid, PEPTO BISMOL or NYQUIL!!!!
    Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump.

    The best piece of news- if you buy Dasani ( fromCoke) you do not get water from a specific source, they only refilter the local water, where the plant is . So you basically are paying them for the water you get out of the tap ...........
