You know if you do the math:-

Bottled water = $8.00 per gallon and a Cafe Latte = $24.00 per gallon.

How much is Gas?!!

Here you go.

My Fav drink is Red bull Energy Drink
I pay $2.39 at the local 7-11 store for 8.3oz

There are 128 oz in 1 Gallon
This equates to 15.4 cans

Therefore Red Bull costs me $36.00 per gallon

OUCH! Now I'm going on the town to find me a rich woman.

How much is your Drink per Gal?

I don't often drink 12 gallons of Red Bull in a day but I can burn that much driving.  I guess I never understood this comparison about how soda (or whatever) was more expensive than gas.  I don't need 50 gallons of soda a week, but I do need that much gasoline.

A  1.5 oz. shot of alcohol (no top shelf) sells for $3.00 (on average) in these parts.
 
There are roughly 85 shots to a gallon.
 
85 x 3 = $255 per gallon

I have always thought that was a ridiculous comparison as well.  They're completely different things.  And it doesn't make anyone feel any better when gas is $4 a gallon.

I agree it is a ridiculous comparison, and thanks for pointing out that they are different things, I almost chugged on some cheap gas.   As ridiculous as it may be,  it is also somewhat interesting as there are certain and obvious similarities.

Actually, it depends on what kind of bottled water you buy.  I just bought four gallon-size bottles of no-name/storebrand spring water for $0.79 each.  The last time gas cost that little, people still called me "Miss" instead of "Ma'am!"
