Price of Printer's Ink. .. ????

The price of Gas versus Printer Ink

All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some prices are....

You will be really shocked by the last one!
(At least, I was...)

Compared with Gasoline......

Think a gallon of gas is expensive?

< /SPAN>

This makes one think, and also puts things in perspective.

Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 ... $10.32 per gallon

Lipton Ice Tea 16 oz $1.19 ..........$9.52 per gallon

Gatorade 20 oz $1.59 ..... $10.17 per gallon

Ocean Spray 16 oz $1.25 ......... $10.00 per gallon

Brake Fluid 12 oz $3.15 ...... $33.60 per gallon

Vick's Nyquil 6 oz $8.35 ... $178.13 per gallon

Pepto Bismol 4 oz $3.85 .. $123.20 per gallon

Whiteout 7 oz $1.39 ....... . $25.42 per gallon

Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 .....$84.48 per gallon

And this is the REAL KICKER...

Evian water 9 oz $1.49..$21.19 per gallon! $21.19 for WATER and the buyers don't even know the source
(Evian spelled backwards is Naive.)

Ever wonder why printers are so cheap?

So they have you hooked for the ink.
Someone calculated the cost of the ink at...............
(you won't believe it....but it is true........)
$5,200 a gal. (five thousand two hundred dollars)

So, the next time you're at the pump,be glad your car doesn't run on water, Scope, or Whiteout, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!

Just a little humor to help ease the pain of your next trip to the pump...

And - If you don't pass this along to at least one person,
your muffler will fall off!!
Okay, your muffler won't really fall off...but, you might run out of toilet paper

Twenty years ago, I bought what was then the latest technology, a Canon Bubblejet printer. I think it was called a 10e. It cost me $1100, and the ink cartridges were $50 apiece.

Now you can buy a printer/copier/scanner/fax for less than $100, and printing ink is also cheaper.

Jus buy a new printer, ink included. Cheaper!

Americans we've complained about gasoline at three plus dollars a gallon for a while now...but others, like the Europeans have been paying much higher prices for years before our rate, my solution will be 'go-electric' when they make one that isn't so tiny...cause I'm American, I like my big fat cadillac! LOL...

Smiles, JCinmeforever

We're alone in the house.

And if you shop at CVS, the price is even higher.

I like it when the gas price goes up. It makes people really think about how they drive and where. Being from the Detroit area, I find it funny. We have the worlds worst public transportation system and everyone drives big huge cars. Except me (Well, besides that one, but that's work and I get paid for that).
