A Gallon Is a Gallon!

Oil prices are so painful these days. So, I decided to republish this humorous post from last year to poke fun at ourselves. Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the gas station.

A Gallon is a Gallon!

To keep things in perspective, even though it still hurts. For those who have forgotten their measurements and prices:

1 cup = 8 ounces
2 cups = 1 pint = 16 ounces
2 pints = 1 quart = 32 ounces
4 quarts = 1 gallon = 128 ounces

You Think A Gallon Of Gas Is Expensive?

It makes one think and puts things in perspective.
Check out 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
Vicks 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 $1.49 ..... $21.19 per gallon.
$21.19 FOR WATER! And the buyers don't even know the source.

So, the next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, Whiteout, PEPTO BISMOL or NYQUIL.

Well, I guess the current oil prices should keep the Saudis happy. More power for the Saudi men and less power for their women.

We'll never win the war on terror in the Middle East unless we become less dependent on their oil. Unless we seriously invest in alternative energy resources, we'll always be fighting in that part of the world.
