I saw, & tried to find, a news vid of people bitching about gas prices due to the war in either saudi, iran or iraq. yeah it went up from 2cents a liter to 4 cents or something

ps our gov is letting nestle & other large multi nationals RAPE our fresh water supply - largest in the world!

this is on how we take water for granted -prophets of doom

On that subject, check out the movie Gasland. Still depresses/worries me when I think about it.

the water/gas argument is flawed since you dont need/nor buy 50 liters of water every week.

no one does shit during the day in saudi. its too hot. lol

You do, in fact you probably use more than that every morning.

I think he was refering to how often you buy bottled water.

at least someone here can follow along. thats what was brought up. the price of bottled water.

your water bill doesnt even come close to costing what bottled water does.

we should break this down even more....when you buy bottled water what is the cost of the bottle vs the water it contains?

bulk plastic bottles would be under 6 cents each. The most expensive part of bottled water is trucking.

I have a feeling there is a mirrored thread on a Saudi BMW forum talking about us paying $1.50/L of premium....and in that instant (above) someone there wrote "they also live in the arctic...i'd rather live here"
