Think a gallon of gas is expensive?


This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.
Diet Snapple [Unable to display image]16 oz $1.29 ....... $10.32 per
gallon




Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ...........$9.52 per gallon




Gatorade [Unable to display image]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 [Unable to display image]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.)




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

If you can't afford the gas, don't buy the big toys and stick to bird watching.

BriEOD; Interesting but I don't buy 25 gallons of any of those liquids on regular basis!


A 16 oz beer that is $4.95 is $39.60 per gallon, now that strikes home.

They know right where to hit us square in the gut because we will never stop paying what they want for beer. :toast:

Mag- other than the lake trips cant you take that off as a work expense

AirJunky
03-24-2005, 12:54 PM
Damn Mag, 200 miles to your closest lake?! Sounds like time to make a move.
And I thought spending $1000 a year on boat gas was bad. Guess I should feel fortunate I didn't have to trailer it there, sit at the ramp, THEN burn up boat gas!

Leroy

EDIT>>>>>>>> uh :o just read your reply again.....of course I deduct fuel as an expense.........just not the boat

Sizzler,

You ought to post how much gas is in the UK, probably 3 or 4 pounds sterling?

Remember when you were a kid and soda was too expensive to drink all the time? And heaven forbid if an adult found a half empty soda can :rant: Heck, now it is the cheapest stuff out there, $1.80 (by the liter) to $5.00 (by the 12 oz can). Too bad my van doesn't run on Mountain Dew :steering:

My son in high school has been raised to drink plain old tap water. Kids at his school are appalled that he will drink water out of a drinking fountain. "oh dude, gross, you're goin to get sick" :rolleyes:

DanC; If you check there are a lot of city water systems that you should not drink from.

There are also more city water systems that have BETTER water than what you can buy in a bottle. In fact, many bottled waters in the US come from a municipal system somewhere....

I have the same setup, 5 miles to lake, 10 mpg Dodge. Gas in my part of NC is at $2.09 right now at the pump, scared to see what the marina prices are like.

Or a wine "evening" of barfing in a trash container behind an old gas station all night when you are 18.. LONG night, LONG time ago, and it was a LONG time before I could ever drink wine again......

Or sitting in the bathtub and puking in the toilet. That too was a long time ago. Jim Beam instead of wine though

Primarily lead, microbiological, clorine, flourine, and chemicals (primarily pesticides, herbicides, and industrial byproducts). But each area is different and some areas are clean. Related is that you should only eat tuna only once a month (love it), and in Indiana many lakes and fish are on limited eating schedule. For tuna its mercury contamination. Similar problem with salmon.

I also agree there are bottled waters that have problems. I always doubt reports from people that are trying to sale me something, interesting reading, maybe can trust this:
http://www.epa.gov/safewater/dwinfo/index.html

Certain areas are know for specific medical conditions often from the water. Also camping rule of thumb is no water that you find is safe to drink unless you treat it (Giardiasis for example)

A lot? Why?

Jeez I'm dead! You officially ruined my day Leroy!
I eat tuna all the time and drink houston tap water
only reason I always buy bottled "spring" water is because it's quick(grab and go)

Ric; I think water is normally no to small risk factor but depends on where you live. The tuna guideline varies but all say to restrict.

Think gas hit another high yesterday. I thought alternative fuels could be made at today's prices?

If you know where to go you can do about 10-15/gal

Moonshiners must run some of the most efficient factories around, I remember $16/gal 30 years ago.

I think it will be the price of oil that will eventually merit the production of other means of fuel which will be cleaner and more efficient.
