    Petrol is really cheap

    I filled up my car'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 (Even 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!
    Getting an idea is like falling in love: excitement is highest when you first meet.

    Have you considered the life of these products into account ?
    Evian water is for rich people who dont know what to do with their money. Few other items that you have mentioned are out of access or dream items still for many many people in India. But even poor people need to commute to work, only if they work they can eat their daily meal.

    Not to offend you but I would not think this to be a good way to console myself.
