    Default Gas prices

    How much is everyone paying for regular unleaded per gallon??? Around here its $2.68. But check this stuff out.

    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!!!!
    (At least, I was...)

    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.
    (Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

    Ever wonder why computer printers are so cheap?

    So they have you hooked for the ink.

    Someone calculated the cost of the ink at................

    you won't believe it...................

    but it is true.........................
    $5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)

    So, the next time you're at the pump, < /B>
    be glad your car doesn't run on
    water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil
    or God forbid, Printer Ink!!!!!

    This is great. I drive 100 miles round trip 5 days a week to work and back. My car gets about 28 mpg but that still costs a lot. If the price was half of what it is I could afford to buy a lot more archery stuff.

    and we have CEO's of oil companies making 400,000,000 a year. Our president is from an Oil family. Our VP owns massive amounts of stock in oil companies and all their friends are in oil.

    did anyone really think it would go DOWN?

    $2.89, up from $2.69 last Thursday. Funny how a holiday weekend (for some) can jack the prices up.

    I have to agree, I am a registered republican, but dont really see anyone on the republican side that impresses me too much. Barack Obama came to our college a couple weeks ago, i went and watched him and have to say he might be alright...

    who knows, there really is no right answer...

    We must consider tha fact tha he is a Muslim.
    They want world dominance and this could be a way for them to get all they need ta take on US.
    I am a little no lot skeptical of this venture>

    SORRY TO HAVE TO TELL YOU THIS THERE HOLY SMOKES! He is not a Muslim, he belongs to the United Church of Christ, his daughters go to a UCC College. There has never been any evidence provided that he is a Muslim. He went to Catholic school as a kid.

    You should probably check the background on people before spewing truthless rumors. That's just my opinion , who am I???


    If it matters I am not a Democrat, not a Bama supporter, not a Muslim.Just would rather see facts posted about PEOPLE not rumor.
