    This is for those of you ranting about the high prices at the gas pumps ... and ror those who have forgotten their mesurements ... and prices.


    1 cup = 8 ozs.
    2 cups = 1 pint = 16 ozs.
    2 pints = 1 quart = 32 ozs.
    4 quarts = 1 gallon = 128 ozs.


    To put things in perspective, check out these prices:


    Diet Snapple, 16 ozs. $1.29 or $10.32 per gallon.
    Lipton Ice Tea, 16 ozs. $1.59 or $9.52 per gallon.
    GatorAid, 20 ozs. $1.59 or $10.17 per gallon.
    OceanSpray, 16 ozs. $1.25 or $10.00 per gallon.
    Brake Fluid, 12 ozs. $3.15 or $33.60 per gallon.
    Vicks Nyquil, 6 ozs. $8.35 or $178.13 per gallon.
    Pepto Bismal, 4 ozs. $3.85 or $123.20 per gallon.
    White Out, 7 ozs. $1.39 or $25.42 per gallon.
    Scope mouthwash, 1.3 ozs. $0.99 or $84.48 pergallon.
    Evian water, 9 ozs. $1.49 or $21.19 per gallon.


    So, next time you're at the pump, be glad that your car doesn't run on Evian water, Scope, White Out, Pepto Bismal or Nyquil ...
