Doesn't make Cents
Ever notice how Americans will literally drive across town to get gasoline for a couple cents cheaper per gallon? So on an 18 gallon tank they saved a total of 36 cents. Yippee! 'Course they burned a quarter of a gallon to get to the station.
Now consider this. Americans buy millions of 20 oz. bottles of water every year. The average individual price is about a dollar a bottle. It takes 6.4 of these bottles to equal a gallon. That means we pay a little over $6 a gallon for bottled water without giving it a second thought. Silly humans.
