GASOLINE IS CHEAP (RELATIVELY)




This was sent to me by my friend Shirley & it shows how much we pay for things nowadays.

WHATEVER GAS COSTS IT SURE BEATS WALKING. WELL VERY FAR ANYWAY.

YOU THINK GASOLINE IS EXPENSIVE
This is priceless!
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)!!!
Think a gallon of gas is expensive?

This makes one think, and also puts things into perspective.

Diet Snapple, 16 oz , $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon!
Starbuck's Reg. Coffee 16 oz, $2.10... $16.80 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 a gallon of WATER!!
and the buyers don't even know the source!!
(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)
Ever wonder why computer printers are so cheap?
So they can hook you for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the ink; you won't believe it but it's true:  $5,200 a gallon.
$5,200 A GALLON!!!

 So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on
water, Scope, Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, NyQuil or, God forbid, Printer Ink!!!!!
And - If you don't pass this along to at least one person, fewer people will know...... !!

Since I didn't write this post, you're getting extra cartoons FREE!!

  1. When you put it that way--gas is a bargain. That is why I always just get a new printer. Cheaper.

  2. Easier to go to the library and use their printer. If you have a card, you can get up to 20 pages a day without paying extra. (One reason i always vote yes for the library property tax, i am willing to pay for their great service.)

  5. This made me laugh! Although it's a bit different here in the UK our gas is very expensive to an American as there is sooo much tax on it. I pay about £5 per gallon ($6.41).
