Although gas prices have dropped slightly here, a chronic complaint is the price per gallon -- right now averaging about $3.75 for regular.
But what about $8.26 per gallon? Yes, that's right! If you buy an average bottle of water in a mini-mart, you pay around $1.29 for 20 fluid ounces. At 20 fl. oz. it takes 6.4 of 'em to make a gallon. 6.4 X $1.29 equals $8.26. So the water you buy at the mini-mart is costing over twice as much as the gas you buy there.
At least the water's better for you.
