Where I live right now, gas is about $2.50 a gallon. How much does a 16 oz. bottle of Aquafina water cost? Something like .85-90 (cents)? Compare a gallon of this filtered water (that's probably came from a neighboring state) to a gallon of gas (from oil shipped from overseas)that has been refined. Good thing cars don't run on filtered water. There is already a thread on gasoline prices.
