Gas Prices VS Printer Ink
« on: April 18, 2008, 09:58:39 AM »


Gas Prices  vs. Printer Ink


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!

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!!

What you see depends on what you're looking for.

Lolz...go ahead darkman, drink gasoline instead of Naive Water. It's gonna save you some money.

But I doubt if it's gonna do that in the long run.

It's ridiculous Brianne. I just filled up my tank ( 20 gals. ) I have a 2008 Mazda CX7 and I can't use regular, I have to use Premium gas
because of it's 2.3 Biti Turbo Engine. It cost me $77.26 to fill my tank up. :crysmiley: :crysmiley:

Wow, that's expensive. We're only paying $3.73/ gallon here and we are complaining.  ;D} ;D}

According to my calculation; you guys are paying $6.32 a gallon overthere.

It's usually very expensive on weekends.

It's not really advisable to drive around these days.

Got to save your gas for work. Halos everyday tumataas ang presyo eh. :sweating:

Premium is at USD $4.19 here.  Regular is still below $4, but probably not for long.
