The Price of Diesel Versus Other Products
Reviewed By Staff Writer (Submitted by Website Contributor - Unknown Author)
All these examples do NOT imply that diesel is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are....
You will be really shocked by the last one!
Compared with Diesel......
Think a gallon of diesel 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...
Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?
So they have you hooked for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the INK at a retail store (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 truck doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or Printer Ink!
Just a little humor to help ease the pain of our next trip to the pump.
