FOOD (and other stuff) FOR THOUGHT ...

With gas prices going up faster then water flowing from a faucet (well, seems like it), an email arrived bringing prespective I want to share:

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon

Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 .......... $9.52 per gallonGatorade 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
Evian Water 9 oz $1.49.. $21.19 per gallon

Sure happy to not have car payments too, though in my life, the only item listed above that I use rarely is  white out.  Mostly, I use the backspace bar!

What do you think?

Me, wonder how much wine is per gallon?  I may have to stop driving to the grocery store...


  1. Wow...that does put it into perspective!
    And wine...it's worth every penny :)

  2. looks like the medicinal liquids are the most expensive - use them sparingly! {:-D


Thank you for stopping in for a bit, and leaving your comments. I enjoy reading and responding ...
