The Price of Gas

A thief in Paris planned to steal some paintings from the Louvre.



After careful planning, he got past security, stole the paintings, and made it safely to his van.

However, he was captured only two blocks away when his van ran out of gas. When asked how he could mastermind such a crime and then make such an obvious error, he replied, ‘Monsieur, that is the reason I stole the paintings.’


‘I had no Monet



to buy Degas


to make the Van Gogh.’


See if you have De Gaulle to send this on to someone else.


I am passing this on to you because I figured I had nothing Toulouse.



If you think gas which is nearly on $4.00 per gallon is expensive…Just think how many of us use and pay for these items on a daily basis:

-Diet Snapple 16 oz $1.29 … $10.32 per gallon
-Lipton Iced 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
-Wite-out 7 oz $1.39 ……. . $25.42 per gallon
-Scope 1.5 oz $0.99 …..$84.48 per gallon
And this is a 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
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 Wite-out, Pepto Bismol, Nyquil or God forbid, Printer Ink!

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