    Yea lots of things cost more per gallon than gasoline, like milk, OJ etc....but I don't need 15 gallons of those things every week the way I need gasoline (not to mention heating fuel).

    I hate when they try to make it sound like the cost of gasoline is actually reasonable because other things cost more. I get my bottles water by the case and it costs me about .21 a bottle.

    With the $500/per quarter water bills we have here, I might dispute this. But then, that's not bottled. Bottled is probably cheaper.

    we buy bottled water by the case too...only way to buy it, at about .18 a bottle....we cook & bathe w/tap water, but we don't drink it..

    We just use a reverse osmosis or a Brita pitcher. I am a spoiled girl because I grew up in the country and we had our own well....mmmm....fresh, clean, and cold right out of the faucet...but now it tastes and SMELLS like chlorine. Brita or the RO takes care of that.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.
