Prices of Things

Have a little time to think?? Ponder this.
A quick cup of Eat-n-Park's $1.25 cup of coffee calculates to $20.00 per gallon
Pricey Starbucks coffee costs $50.00 per gallon.
Cows are milked daily on nearby farms. Milk costs $2.80 per gallon.

All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap;
it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are....
You will be really shocked by the last one!!!!
(At least, I was...)


Compared with Gasoline......

Think a gallon of gas is expensive?


This makes one think, and also 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 $1.49......... .$21.19 per gallon!
$21.19 for WATER
and the buyers don't even know the source.

(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?
So they have you hooked for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the ink at................
you won't believe it...................
but it is true.........................
$5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)



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


Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...
And - If you don't pass this along to at least one person,
your muffler will fall off!!



Makes one stop and think, doesn't it.

You should see how much ink I use--ouch!!
Who'd know.
Cheers, Millie
