Upset about the high price of fuel? Maybe it’s not so bad, especially considering that
about one-third of its cost goes to taxes. In contrast, consider what you would pay if you
were to buy:

Diet Snapple – 16 oz. for $1.29 = $10.32 per gallon
Lipton Ice Tea – 16 oz. for $1.19 = $9.52 per gallon
Gatorade – 20 oz. for $1.59 = $10.17 per gallon
Evian (water) – 9 oz. for $1.49 = $21.19 per gallonM
STP Brake Fluid -12 oz. for $3.15 = $33.60 per gallon
Scope – 1.5 oz. for $0.99 = $84.84 per gallon
Vicks Nyquil – 6 oz. for $8.35 = $178.13 per gallon
Pepto Bismol – 4 oz. for $3.85 = $123.20 per gallon
