The price of Gas vs. Printer Ink

All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are....

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...

I'm glad I can do most of my work from home. My office is 20 miles away. Even with driving an 03 Corolla, it's still not very efficient - and I'm not very efficient when I'm there.

In selling insurance, I used to go find a business park to canvass. Now, I know it's much more financially effective to just use the phone. I don't like it, but it's cheaper on gas and better on my time.

Luckily, I don't drive very far to work so I only get gas about once almost every two weeks.

Same here, thank God. I work with a guy though who drives 25 miles to work everyday and his gas bill is like $120 every week. Of course he also drives a big F-350 but still........If my gas bill was that high I literally would not be able to make it financially. Around here gas is around $3.19.

Here in the suburbs of Philly gas is about $3.29/gallon. It took about $39 to fill up my hooptie Chrysler (16 gallon tank, fortunately not dead-a@@ed empty at the time).

Their predictions are getting almost like the weather man's....way off.

I didn't look today. It was still at $3.29 last night. I'm very grateful that I live only two miles from my job. And that tax season is over, because that place was 12 miles away.

My old hooptie Chrysler gets about 20 mph city and 24 highway. Though the city mileage has gotten worse with the freaking ethanol in gasoline, might be down to 17-18 mpg now. I haven't had the heart to recalculate for city miles. The highway miles seems to be the same with either the regular gas or the ethanol blend.
