Gasoline – Cheap at $4.00 per gallon

By Brian | May 11, 2008 | Share on Facebook

My Uncle Walter, now retired in Florida, sends me about 50 Internet jokes a month (kinda makes you remember 1997, no?) Anyway, this one was the first in a very long time to actually make me smile. Not so much a joke, just a little perspective:

ItemCurrent Cost per Gallon
Lipton Iced Tea$9.52
Ocean Spray$10.00
Diet Snapple$10.32
Brake Fluid$33.60
Scope Mouthwash$84.48
Pepto Bismol$123.20
Printer Ink$5,200

Let’s hope the first alternative fuel car doesn’t run on printer ink, huh?

    I’m not clear what perspective I’m supposed to get out of this. Shouldn’t we also be considering how many gallons of each product the average person uses? And how the prices of everything else will rise, since they all require fuel as part of the production and distribution costs?

    Or, for a different perspective, should we just look back at http://www.familygreenberg.com/2006/11/local-economic-indicators.html ?

    I guess the real question is: why do you want to minimize the importance of the gasoline prices?

    Not minimizing, just poking some ironic fun.

    Nice job quoting me back to me, though! That’s a first, I believe (unless Porten beat you to it…)
