    Putting gas prices in perspective

    And You Thought Gas Was Expensive!!
    ((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...) ((This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.))
    **Compared with Gasoline**
    Think a gallon of gas is expensive?

    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 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, be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!!*

    ((Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...))

    cost of goods

    I figured out how to beat the high cost of printer ink My Lexmark X6170 uses cartridges that cost $57.00. When I replaced the first time I had printed approx 1000 sheets. The replacement cartridges printed about 750 sheets. I went to Sam's and bought a new printer for $79.00 and so far have printed 1500 sheets and still show 75%.?
