The high price of gas VS...

My father forwards things from the Internet, most times I read them, but sometimes I don't. Often he'll ask me, "what did you think of that article or those pictures?" and I don't want to hurt his feelings by telling him I didn't bother to look at it so....
Anyway, dad just sent me a price list of items we often use comparing them to the price of gasoline. Last night at the gas station we left with our wallet $30.00 lighter and just a little over 8 gallons of gas. Price per gallon $3.64.
On that sad note here's what my father sent me:
Lipton ice tea 16 oz bottle 1.19......$9.52 per gallon
I found this picture of red tea. We don't have it around here but it looks yummy.

Ocean Spray Cranberry Juice Cocktail 16 oz bottle $1.25.....$10.00 per gallon
Gatorade 20 oz bottle $1.59.....$10.17 per gallon
Snapple 16 oz bottle $1.29....$10.32 per gallon
Evian 9 oz bottle $1.49...$21.19 per gallon
Evian is naive spelled backwards.

White Out, 7 oz bottle $1.39....$25.42 per gallon

Brake fluid 12 oz bottle $3.15...$33.60 per gallon
Scope mouthwash 1.5 oz sample size .99.....$84.48 per gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 oz bottle $3.85....$123.20 per gallon
Nyquil 6 oz bottle $8.35...$178.13 per gallon
I hate this stuff, I always feel sicker after I drink it.

Finally coming in at a whopping $22.00 per oz is...

HP printer ink

That's more than one ounce of imported
Russian caviar and prices out to $2,816 per gallon!

Now I'm sure that this didn't make you feel any better about the price of gas but I guess we can be thankful that our cars don't run on any of this stuff.

Amusing comparison. If oil prices stay over $110/barrel, it's not hard to imagine $5/gallon gas by Christmas is it?
