That's it?!?! Lucky.

UPS like to charge me $45-$50, and then come back and bill me an extra $5 for "extra fuel charges" two weeks later.... grrrr

Gatorade- 20 Oz. $1.59.....$10.17 Per Gallon
Brake Fluid- 12 Oz. $3.15.....$33.60 Per Gallon
Vick's Nyquil 6 Oz. $8.35.... $178.13 Per Gallon
Pepto Bismol 4 Oz. $3.85.....$123.20 Per Gallon
Scope 1.5 Oz. $0.99.... $84.48 Per Gallon
White Out 7 Oz. $1.39.....$25.42 Per Gallon
Ocean Spray 16 Oz. $1.25.....$10.00 Per Gallon

LOL Awesome post! Really puts things into perspective...

but then again, how often do I need 15 gallons of Pepto Bismol or White out? :hehe:

Whats more expensive is seeing the gas prices already effecting grocery store prices.

The reason i complained anyways the prices were on reptile food, when i was starting my order. Were these prices.

$7 for 2-day
$13 for nextday pm
$14 for nexday am

By the time i made it from the shipping quote to the checkout shipping jumped another $1

As long as I can still afford to drive to Daytona in August, I won't complain :)

Between gas prices and dimensional weights, my avg. $35 to ship last year is now an average of $55-60 per box priority overnight with FedEx. I do love the 2 pound box being "dimmed" at 11 pounds. :rolleyes:
