Maybe Price/Gallon for Gas is too Low at $6?

Real Estate Agent with HomeSmart Real Estate BR632450000

Maybe the national price of GASOLINE at $6/gallon is too low? Maybe not... but how about comparing gasoline in liguid form to other competitive types of liquids that also have to be processed/refined? We think of gas prices as being high, but are they really high when compared to other liquids that we commonly buy which are REALLY HIGH? (Photo: Gas Station by ElasticComputerFarm from Pixabay)

Interesting. This really puts gas prices by the gallon ($/gallon)  into perspective. Now apply this to home prices by square foot (price/sf) from one subdivision to the next, what really determines the home price?

Gas Prices By the Gallon - All these examples do NOT imply that gasoline is cheap; it just illustrates how outrageous some other prices are in relation to other comparable liquids.

You might be really shocked by the comparative liquids at the Mini Mart at the gasoline pump to the luquids in the cold drink section or home products aisle similar to comparables (comps) on home prices. Photo Foundry Co Pixabay

Think a gallon of gas is expensive? This makes one think, and also puts things into perspective.

Good morning Jeff. Cheapest regular gas near downtown Chicago is $6.10 a gallon. I get about 28 miles per gallon on the highway at 70 miles per hour. I don't like my coffee hot so can drive an hour or longer on one cup which is enough for most of the day. Coffee is expensive in downtown Chicago but not much more than pre-Biden yet! Gas was about one-third the price. And John Kerry was not touring the world in a private jet, at our expense, saying we must go green while he contributes to pollution. The only green for me these days is coming out of my pocket in cash.

It is funny and sad Kat Palmiotti when one thinks that oil has to be shipped across the world to refineries and then refined into gas and then shipped in pipelines, trains and/or trucks to gas stations throughout the US and it is $6/gallon and Evian Water is priced at over $21/gallon someone is paying too much I think.

Roger that Wayne Martin conserve the GREEN. That is why more people are going to live "off the grid" and self maintain. Not for me but it is happening.
