I Remember When Gas was Cheap

Everybody talks about how expensive gas is these days, but when you compare gas with some other household items if you bought them on a prioce per gallon basis, gas does not seem quite so expensive.

Today, I thought it would be fun to show you some other common items we use everyday and what their price would be if we were buying them by the gallon.  Just took the price based on whatever amount it is sold at and converted it to gallons.  I used www.cokeyed.com as my source for this information.  I think you will be surprised by the results.

Gasoline                                                     $3.42 per gallon

Milk                                                            $3.79 per gallon

Evian bottled water                                  $6.40 per gallon

Hershey’s syrup                                        $13.23 per gallon

Red Bull energy drink                              $30.69 per gallon

Robitussin DM                                           $109.76 per gallon

Cover Girl nail polish                                $892.80 per gallon

Black ink (for a printer cartridge)          $2,701.52 per gallon

Chanel No. 5 perfume                               $25,600.00 per gallon

Can you think of any other common things you use everyday that would be ridculously expensive if you bought them by the gallon?  If so, please share them with me.

About wmarsau

Most of the people who visit this blog already know me so it is kind of pointless to try to describe my life in this short little blurb. What is the purpose of this blog is the question. Over the course of this last year I have been exposed to some amazing people and have made personal development an important focus of my life. Being successful, not by the world's standards, but by God's has become my main focus. Mainly, I want to work to develop myself as a person who is kinder, reaches out to help those in need, and truly makes a difference in this world. To this end I am constantly reading and am exposed to so many differnet things along the way. These have been amazing and it is helping me grow so much. Then I started to think, "Why am I being so selfish?" You need to share with others these amazing things you are learning and being exposed to. That is where this blog comes into play. As I am reading and experiencing things that are truly amazing and life changing, I will be posting them on this blog. Obviously, I will not be able to post everything in it's entirity, but I will be summarizing them and letting you know the source of the article or book they come from so you can check them out later if you wish. I want this blog to be a place where you can go to often and be inspired and leave here with a smile on your face. I will be covering all kinds of different topics dealing with success and personal development. Topics like taking action, relationships, living to your potential, reinventing yourself, finances, leadership, presenting, goal setting, time management, etc. I will also be occasionally including topics on cooking, music, and gardening because they are special interests of mine. As a little disclaimer, I have given my life to the Lord and he is #1 in my life. I am his servant and everything I do in life is for his glory. With that being said, religion influences all areas of my life. There will be references to God in this blog because I can't seperate God from this or any other area of my life. I want you to know that if you do not believe in God, that is fine. That is your choice. This blog is open to anyone who wants to better their life. I will not be trying to influence or pressure anyone into having a relationship with the Lord from this site. Please don't feel uncomfortable. You can just read the portions of the blog that you wish to. I am inviting you to go on a journey with me. We will learn together to be the kind of people we were designed to be. Anyone can make a difference in this world, but it starts%
