Price Of Gas

I was going to post about warts, but I got this forward in the e-mail and had to share it. I am a sucker for useless calculations!

Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...

Trying to find something funny in the absurdity of it all .......................

The price of Gas versus Printer Ink

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

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!

Well that makes nearly $4.00 a gallon much better! LOL

It still hurts.

It's like stamps...they just keep going up so drastically. It was $2.75 a gallon on our last big vacation two years ago...and now it's $4.00! Ugh.

I wonder if my car could be converted to that donut-grease bio-fuel? At least it would SMELL good while driving, lol.

Good thing I don't change the ink on my printer but every 4 or 5 months lol.

Gas was 3.42 at the Costco Gas station here last time I got gas. Cheaper then the rest of the gas stations if only by a few cents.

gas prices make me feel like an old lady:
"Back in my day, gas was 89 cents a gallon"
