Gas Price Comparison

People have been complaining about the rising price of gasoline recently, but I have always thought that gas was a good value (especially if you were to take the $0.30, $0.40 per gallon tax off at the pump)! Obviously others need a little convincing. So the article in this week’s “Autoweek” magazine brought it all to light. What if you were to buy a gallon of . . .

1. – Diet Snapple 16 oz for $1.29 = $10.32 per gallon

2. – Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz for $1.19 = $9.52 per gallon

3. – Gatorade 20 oz for $1.59 = $10.17 per gallon

4. – Ocean Spray 16 oz for $1.25 = $10.00 per gallon

5. – Quart of Milk 16 oz for $1.59 = $6.32 per gallon

6. – Evian (water) 9 oz for $1.49 = $21.19 per gallon

7. – STP Brake Fluid 12 oz for $3.15 = $33.60 per gallon

8. – Vicks Nyquil 6 oz for $8.35 = $178.13 per gallon

9. – Pepto Bismol 4 oz for $3.85 = $123.20 per gallon

10. – Whiteout 7 oz for $1.39 = $254.17 per gallon

11. – Scope 1.5 oz for $0.99 = $84.84 per gallon

So next time you’re at the pump, be glad your car doesn’t run on Nyquil or Scope or Whiteout!
