I posted this old e-mail joke a couple years ago, but the news this week said fuel prices are going up. So here's a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the gas pump...
All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are.......(based on approximate retail prices)
Think a gallon of gas is expensive at today's price of $ _._ _?
($3.19 here in South Carolina on Wednesday when I filled up. What's the price by you?)
Consider these prices:
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 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? (They are?)
It's so they have you hooked for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the ink at...............$5,200.00 per 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 Printer Ink!
And, since this is one of those awful e-mail forwards . . .
If you don't pass this along to at least one person, your muffler will fall off!!
Okay, your muffler won't really fall off...but, you might run out of toilet paper.
