    What does tap water cost per gallon? That is the only liquid that I use more than gasoline. I don't buy gatorade in 12-gallon increments twice a month! Or Nyquil, or Pepto, or scope (though I suppose I should!:) ), or whiteout, or anything else on the list.

    Like it or not, gasoline runs the engine of the American economy, and it is a shame that we are so beholding to OPEC for much of it. And we can't go looking for crude oil most anywhere in North America because of the leftist environmentalists and their mostly Democrat allies in Congress.:steamed:
