I've heard a lot of people recently talk about the price of gas. Of course, an impending war doesn't help ease one's concern, so here's a little "perspective" to help your frustration with rising gas prices...

Did you know that a 16 oz Diet Snapple, at the retail price of $1.29 equals $10.32 per gallon? And... a 16 oz Lipton Ice Tea at $1.19 equals $9.52 per gallon, a 20 oz Gatorade for $1.59 equals $10.17 per gallon, a 16 oz Ocean Spray for $1.25 equals $10.00 per gallon, while a Pint of milk for $1.59 equals $12.72 per gallon.

Furthermore, a 12 oz container of STP Brake Fluid at $3.15 equals $33.60 per gallon, a 6 oz container of Vick's Nyquil for $8.35 equals $178.13 per gallon, a 4 oz Pepto Bismol bottle for $3.85 equals $123.20 per gallon, a 0.7 oz bottle of Whiteout for $1.39 equals $25.42 per gallon, and a 1.5 oz bottle of Scope for $0.99 equals $84.48 per gallon.

But wait... it gets worse! A 9 oz bottle of Evian water, commonly sold for $1.49, equals $21.19 per gallon. $21.19 FOR WATER!

So next time you're at the pump, be glad your car doesn't run on Nyquil, Scope, Whiteout, or bottled water!

Is the God you serve able to meet your needs?

And when he came to the gate of the city, behold, the widow woman was there gathering of sticks: and he called to her, and said, Fetch me, I pray thee, a little water in a vessel, that I may drink.

And as she was going to fetch it, he called to her, and said, Bring me, I pray thee, a morsel of bread in thine hand. And she said, As the LORD thy God liveth, I have not a cake, but an handful of meal in a barrel, and a little oil in a cruse: and, behold, I am gathering two sticks, that I may go in and dress it for me and my son, that we may eat it, and die.

And Elijah said unto her, Fear not; go and do as thou hast said: but make me thereof a little cake first, and bring it unto me, and after make for thee and for thy son. For thus saith the LORD God of Israel, The barrel of meal shall not waste, neither shall the cruse of oil fail, until the day that the LORD sendeth rain upon the earth.

And she went and did according to the saying of Elijah: and she, and he, and her house, did eat many days. And the barrel of meal wasted not, neither did the cruse of oil fail, according to the word of the LORD, which he spake by Elijah. -1 Kings 17:10

But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus. -Philippians 4:19
