I received this interesting email

Petrol is really cheap

~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~ ~~

I filled up my Bike's fuel tank, and I thought fuel has
become really expensive after the recent price hike.

But then I compared it with other common liquids and did
some quick calculations, and I felt a little better.

To know why, see the results below you'll be
surprised at how outrageous some other prices are ! !

Diesel (regular) in Mumbai : Rs.36.08 per litre

Petrol (speed) in Mumbai : Rs.52 per litre

Coca Cola 330 ml can : Rs.20 = Rs.61 per litre

Dettol antiseptic 100 ml Rs.20 = Rs.200 per litre

Radiator coolant 500 ml Rs.160 = Rs.320 per litre

Pantene conditioner 400 ml Rs.165 = Rs.413 per litre

Medicinal Mouthwash like Listerine 100 ml Rs.45 = Rs. 450
per litre

Red Bull 150 ml can : Rs.75 = Rs.500 per litre

Corex cough syrup 100 ml Rs.57 = Rs. 570 per litre

Evian water 500 ml Rs. 330 = Rs. 660 per litre

Rs. 660 for a litre of WATER  !! 

And the buyers don't even know the source (Evian
spelled backwards is Naive.)

Kores whiteout 15 ml Rs. 15 = Rs. 1000 per litre

Cup of coffee at any decent business hotel 100 ml Rs. 50 =
Rs. 500 per litre

Old Spice after shave lotion 100 ml Rs. 175 = Rs. 1750 per
litre

Pure almond oil 25 ml Rs. 68 = Rs. 2720 per litre

And this is the REAL KICKER...

HP DeskJet colour ink cartridge 21 ml Rs.1900 = Rs. 90476
per litre!!!

Now you know why computer printers are so cheap ? So they
have you hooked for the ink !

So, the next time you're at the pump, don't curse
anyone just be glad your car doesn't run on cough
syrup, after shave, coffee, or God forbid, printer ink!

While it is a bummer that I shell out fifty bucks each time I refill my car; we human beings sure deserve it.

As for those who pay for drinking water, just a bunch of pansies. What is wrong with good old fashioned tap water? Germs make water taste better.

As for the other stuff, it actually makes sense that we pay that high for it. Wont it make more sense to compare energy vs energy.
