I got this in an email. Don't take the calculations literally, that could be painful and right now, buying gas is painful enough. Smile and little and look for the humor in everything.
The price of Gas versus 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!
Did you notice that 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 ... $5,200 a gallon!!!
So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, 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!
(O.K, your muffler won't really fall off...but, you might run out of toilet paper )
