    I hope to god that no one uses any of these, with the exception of gas and maybe the wine, by the gallon.

    $6.04 for a gallon of milk? This graphic`s legitimacy has been compromised. Also, why are we still bashing Palin? Move along internet, move along.

    It`s all about supply and mainly demand...heck, these prices are stupid propaganda nonsense. It`s using two completely different measuring sticks. When these comparisons first came out, I thought was the stupidest things that were just to tell people that "hey, oil`s cheap".

    It`s more about the frequency you have to pay for things. I don`t go out every other week or so to buy 15 gallons of nail polish now, do I?

    Yes, but when`s the last time you needed to fill a 10-15 gallon tank with Purell Hand Sanitizer or olive oil? Sure, I wouldn`t complain about $4 a gallon of gasoline if all I needed was a gallon at a time. Plus none of those things are necessities as gasoline is.

    Often we don`t measure these other things in gallons, such as freaking nail polish, so this chart is moot.

    I`m sure if cars ran on nail polish people would bitch about paying $1,024 a gallon for it. But they don`t, so comparing them doesn`t make any sense.

    And does anybody really pay $6 for a gallon of milk? I get it for a little over $2

    People complain about $4 per gallon of gas and not orange juice, milk, or bleach because we don`t go through 10 gallons of those things every week. A gallon of bleach lasts me a very long time. Additionally, as gas rises in price everything else gets more expensive too.

    I always hate these things. Yes, its true we pay more for some things per gallon, but Im pretty sure most people don`t use 20 gallons of nail polish a week.

    Gas for many people is a NECESSITY. With out gas they can`t get to work. With out getting to work they don`t have jobs. No jobs, no money, no paying bills.

    lol @ that.

    As Sarah Palin and others complain about $4-gallon gas price....

    Since when has Sarah Palin been making valid points? Why even mention it? How is this worth my attention?

    On a side note, they should have put printer ink in here. It`s probably the most expensive liquid most people buy.

    Personally though, I think the top prize goes to TIM compound. I paid $9 for 5mL of that stuff.

    Sure, they say compare the prices, but when it comes down to it, my car doesn`t run on coke. I don`t even typically drink coke.
    Plus, you buy multiple gallons of gas at once. You dont typically buy milk 10 gallons at a time.
    Also, maybe if you`d lower the price on gas, i might be able to a gallon of milk or a coke with the money i saved. :P

    this must be prices over on the east. I never pay 6 bucks a gallon for milk. Or this is all based on imaginary prices the person randomly thought of to try and make us not cry about soaring gas prices. We don`t use nail polish by the gallon either dip sh.t. Would take a girl like 20 years to go through a gallon.

    The thing is- I go through a bottle of nail polish A LOT slower than the several gallons I need weekly. That`s the hard part. Most of these things you don`t use as often as gas, or in the same quantities at a certain time. DX

    okay, time to fill our gas tanks with nail polish. how long does nail polish last? years. HOWEVER, we go through a full tank of gas in about a week, sometimes less. THATS what the fuss is about. having to spend $100+ just to fill up twice a week. thats 200 bucks.

    This post is just silly. Our economy heavily relies on oil and gas to function so people are concerned if the price goes up, and rightly so. However we are not reliant on nail polish remover, so who cares if it costs $1,024 per gallon? This is just pointless information trying to make a point...

    If your paying that $10.24/gallon for Fiji water. Your out of your freaking minds. My sister-in-law is a Fijian. I`ve been to Fiji many times. I can safely say Fiji water unless filtered is not very potable. Most come from the aquifer that is being slowly drained below the salinity table from the ocean. It`s all a bunch of hyperbole marketing.

    A) Who the hell pays $6 for a gallon of milk?

    B) The point isn`t how much something costs per gallon, it`s the cost per amount you use in a set amount of time.

    You don`t drink a gallon or two of milk every day, and if you do... Enjoy those kidney stones...

    You don`t go through a gallon jug of Clorox every day, and if you do your whites must be f*cking CLEAN. And your (former) reds, blues, blacks, etc... Either that or you are one HIGH son-of-a-b*tch.

    You don`t drink a gallon of Red Bull every day. If you do... Well, I`m not sure how you`re reading this from the hospital bed after your ninth heart-attack, but okay... Keep trooping on, good sir.

    However, many people DO use at least one gallon of gas every (usually week-) day getting back and forth to work, school, etc. Some people use even more, depending on their location.

    Plus, shipping costs go up, so the price of everything else goes up too...

    If people are so angry about gas prices they should start looking at real solutions to the problem: everyone says "let`s stop using gas for a week! boycott it and show `em all what`s what!" That`s a terrible idea. Boycotting gas will only raise the price to make up for the lack of sales. If you don`t want to pay for it, try having a green movement where everyone boycotts gas for LIFE. Better for the environment. If you want to keep using gas but want to lower the price, the only way to do that is to go get a degree in engineering or oil drilling or whatever from Afghanistan or Iran or wherever we really get our gas from so you don`t make stupid mistakes like BP. Also, hire a crew of workers from Afghanistan/Iran so you are absolutely sure you won`t have another gulf screw up. Drill American oil with your super expert crew of drillers and then the oil and gas prices will lower. Thank you.

    I can tell you right now I am not dependent on anything in that list except gasoline which takes several gallons to go any distance. The majority of the items on the list are convenient but without gasoline you can`t do anything. Not only that but even those items you do need you can get with a competitive price but gasoline comes priced at the barrel as it comes out of the ground. If we do move to an alternative fuel type it must be multiple types or we will see the same exact thing happen again with the next fuel.

    The one missing element of all of this: the price of everything else on the list is impacted by the price of oil (gasoline and diesel). When the price of gas and diesel go up, so does the price of everything else on the list.

    And while a temporary gas price increase tends to produce an increase in the price of other consumer goods, when the price of gas declines, the price of those other goods usually does not.

    @Angelmassb Not really relevant when the price of crude oil does not equate to the price for gasoline at all. In fact right now, when gas is almost $4 a gallon here in the US, crude oil is around $100 a barrel? (last time I checked) When gas went up this high last time (beginning of the Iraq occupation, it isn`t a war) crude was about $200 or more a barrel, still same price for gas. How does that matter to the issue then?

    oh and around %60 the cost in the UK is straight to the govenment, less than 5% goes to the retailer and that is also the money used to pay for the delivery.

    Tritium is $30,000 per gram but none of us use it. The price itself has no actual value if we don`t know how fast we`re using the product. If someone charged you a penny for every breath you took, it would be worse than paying $1000 for a gallon of nail polish that`ll probably last you a life time if you`re a guy or half a life time if you`re a girl.

    "Totally irrelevant. I`m not putting orange juice nor milk in my gas tank because neither gets me to work."

    This. I use gas day in and day out for transportation everywhere. Quantity wise I use up many more gallons of gas than anything on this list. Drinking max a liter of coke a day is the only thing that could almost compare. But I get it for free. And the price per gallon on coke is much different depending on how you buy it. Can from vending machine $1 or so, 2 liter at grocery store less than $1.50

    ... But how much would printer ink cost per gallon?

    I`ve just been looking at that to get a rough idea. It`s not straightforward because the manufacturers rarely if ever state how much ink is in a cartridge. Presumably that`s because they don`t want people to work out the cost per unit.

    I found a few claims that new cartridges at the manufacturer`s recommended retail price work out as between US$3000 and US$7000 per USA gallon.

    You can pay up to £1000 a litre here in the UK, depending on which cartridges you buy. That`s £3785 per USA gallon, which is $6175 at the moment. So that upper limit of $7000 in the USA looks plausible.

    The entry point for a decent malt scotch whisky is around the £25 - say $40 for 70Cl. So just over $200 a gallon.

    The law of diminishing returns then cuts in..

    HP 40 yo costs approx $5000 a gallon, but I bet it tastes a lot better than the printer ink...

    This chart means nothing without the comparative consumption (gallons per year per person for example).
    In the majority of cases prices of things also depend on supply and demand.
    People are right to complain for increases in the prices of basic goods, and things they use a lot of. Especially when most of what their money goes to, is tax and mark-ups.
    Compare gas prices (per gallon) for example:
    USA: $3.53
    UK: $8.21
    Greece: $8.62
    Most of the price difference is tax for the case of the UK and Greece.

    1) The fact that they say $6.04 for a gallon of milk shows this whole thing to be a lie. I pay no more than $3.50 for a gallon of milk, and I buy it by the half gallon, which would make it more expensive. 2) It`s not a matter of how much you pay for a gallon, but how long that lasts you. Yes, you may be a ton for a gallon of white out, but you won`t need a gallon of it in your whole life. Where as you may need a gallon of gas to go pick up the little bottle of white out.

    Percentage of average income paid for 100 gallons:

    Canada: 1.2685%
    United-States: 0.3384%

    "milk $6/gallon"
    where are you buying your milk. I think $3.50 is expensive where I am, I typically buy it for $2.19/gallon

    "clorox bleach"
    don`t buy the name brand, just make sure it has the same % sodium hypochloride; offbrand goes for $1.67/gallon, of course a year ago it was $.1.25/galllon

    "8oz purell"
    it gets cheaper if you buy the off brand (germ-x) and the larger bottle. 40oz bottle is typically $5, so ~$15/gallon

    "I might be wrong. I found my info on p.13 of this .pdf"

    You are definitely wrong... I see where you got your number (the number of US households by the thousands, which is a count of total households in the US, not income).

    On page 13 it says,
    `In 2009, the per capita income for the overall population was $26,530`

    and On Page 4,
    `The real median household income in 2009 was $49,777, not statistically different from the 2008 median.`

    But then again, this is the census, which has an awful participation percentage.

    I nearly choked, is $8(£5) really the cost of a pint of guiness? I can get away with paying £2.70 ($4.30) or less.

    I guess they really hike up the cost due to the distance it travels.

    To those who keep getting sticker shock of $6.00/gallon on milk and can`t accept the number. The person who created the chart probably got it from Hawaii. We literally pay almost $7.00 for a gallon of milk on the Big Island except when a store runs a sale. Then maybe a little under $6.00 for a week run on such. We even have our own dairy cows in Naalehu and Kamuela.

    You mainlanders are just lucky. Food for a family of four can run you about $800.00 to $1000.00 a month average easily.

    I really wish Americans would stop moaning about petrol prices in General. Just done the calculations and here in the UK we are currently paying £1.30 per litre = £5.91 per gallon = $9.68 per gallon.

    Don`t like the price of gas? Tough, this is what you get for living under a fossil fuel based economy. This might teach you not to laugh when people talk about renewable energy or hydrogen/electric powered cars. the days of the SUV are over.

    "United-States average yearly income (all households) is 117,000 US. "

    "Um... no. The real number is closer to $50,000"
    It is lower than that according to the information I have seen. Way lower.

    Wait, $6 for a gallon of milk? What the hell? Even in Massachusetts, we don`t sell milk for that much. MAYBE in some places where half gallons are a tad expensive (my store is at $2.49 for all half gallons), buying two still doesn`t add up to $6. poo`s crazy.

    The difference between gas and the pricier items on this infograph is the amount that is consumed it is not out of the ordinary to consume 20 gallons of gasoline in a week or two; it is VERY unlikely that anyone will ever use a gallon of nail polish in such a short period of time.
    What is really outrageous about the price of gas is that it is based on fantasy. The price you pay at the pump is based upon what the importers expect they will be paying for crude oil next year. It has absolutely nothing to do with what the price of crude oil is presently.
    It`s pointless to try and figure out the "average yearly income" of the American household. Our incomes vary so wildly that there is no solid middle ground. Some households have an annual income that is below the cost of living and they can`t survive without government assistance - as low as $20,000 per year. Some households have incomes in the $600,000/yr and up range - the latter are not considered to be especially we

    I pay $3.50 for a half gallon of milk from a local creamery. It tastes way better than store-purchased milk.

    I almost didnt respond to this-

    "incomes in the $600,000/yr and up range - the latter are not considered to be especially we"

    if you are trying to say this is not considered especially wealthy you are brainless... I could live on $600k for about the rest of my life so drat off

    $6 a gallon for organic milk is possible.

    See, this is why I don`t buy most of this crap...and if I do, I go to Costco or the farmer`s market for better prices...

    I went to Ireland and it cost about $120 to fill up the car. Maybe if you had a small car and you`d be driving stick of course the gap would get smaller but it made me come back and not bitch as much about paying almost $3.50/gallon.

    It would be more interesting to compare these gallon prices to other countries.
