You Think A Gallon Of Gas Is Expensive??

Makes one think, and puts things in perspective.

Diet Snapple 16oz $1.29 $10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea 16oz $1.19 $9.52 per gallon
Gatorade 20oz $1.59 $10.17 per gallon
Ocean Spray 16oz $1.25 $10.00 per gallon
Brake Fluid 12oz $3.15 $33.60 per gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6oz $8.35 $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4oz $3.85 $123.20 per gallon
Whiteout 7oz $1.39 $25.42 per gallon
Scope 1.5oz $0.99 $84.48 per gallon
And this is the REAL KICKER......
Evian water 9oz 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 Nyquil, or
Scope, or Whiteout.
