Gas: price comparisons
This is an email that my grandmother sent to me, I thought it amusing....I'd never thought of gas prices in quite this light before.
Do You Think A Gallon Of Gas Is Expensive?
Makes one think, and 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
This is the REAL KICKER..........Evian water 9 oz for $1.49 .........
$21.19 per gallon.
$21.19 FOR WATER! ....and the buyers don't even know the source. But
then again EVIAN spelled backwards is NAIVE !
So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on
water, Scope, or Whiteout, or heaven forbid, PEPTO BISMOL or
If you want to make God laugh....make plans.

I did see that a while back. People always complain bout gas prices...
I complain bout software prices..
is a firefox extension that gives you stats on how long you have quit smoking, how much money you\'ve saved, how much you haven\'t smoked and recent milestones. Very helpful for people who quit smoking and used to smoke at their computers... Helps out with the urges.

- It\'s like something out of that twilighty show about that zone.

There was actually a petrol station in Manchester, England which displayed the price of milk on its large sign along with the price of petrol, diesel etc.
The milk was slightly (but not much) cheaper.
Shows how differently we tax stuff over here (I don't think the milk is taxed)
It's more expensive in the UK. However,
