Gasoline Catching up to Coca Cola

Americans love to complain about gas prices and they have plenty to complain about these days. The national average for a gallon of regular gas is now $3.79 according to the Lunderg Survey.

A 20 ounce bottle of Coke typically costs $1 in a vending machine or a gas station. There are 128 ounces/gallon. That puts a gallon of Coke at $6.40. If you by the 2 liter containers @ $1 that go flat after one use, you are looking at $1.90/Gallon of Coke.

It seems we are either getting a great deal on gas, or paying too much for sugar water. What do you think?
