Gas Cheap Coffee Expensive

So there are 128 oz. per gallon.
You get 16 8oz. cups from a gallon.
16 cups at $1.25 per cup = $20 per gallon of coffee bought from restaurants.
$2 a cup from Starbucks = $32.
Who said gas is expensive. Thankfully our cars don't run on coffee.
How much would a gallon of water be when bought in the small bottles?

resaurant? is that a newly discovered dinosaur?

I mean no hard feelings for what I post on this website. Anything I type/write/post/say on this forum is only that of general debate and discussion. I am not biased toward anyone or anything. I am neutral in everything I do on this website. Only those facts that are presented to me sway my thought process and siding of each discussion topic that I post about.

The great thing about coffee... is the free refills.

BTW, I don't NEED coffee. I do NEED gas.

Re: Gas Cheap Coffee Expensive

If our cars ran on coffee and if coffee was a fossil fuel I guess it would make sense that coffee came from a newly discovered dinosaur like "resaurant" recently found in Columbia. But as that's not the case -
oops - it's restaurant.

Re: Gas Cheap Coffee Expensive

A 16oz drip coffee at Starbucks in Seattle is 1.58. So about .10 per ounce. That's 12.80 a gallon. Not sure how you're doing your math.

Re: Gas Cheap Coffee Expensive

Yet another completely pointless comparison.

First, you don't need to drink as much coffee as your car needs to drink gas. That's the fundamental flaw in these comparisons - the consumption model.

Second, if your car did run on coffee I guarantee that you would not be filling up at Starbucks, you would brew your own at home. Try that with automotive fuel (biodiesel notwithstanding). Another major flaw in these comparisons - options in the production and delivery models.

Coffee you can brew yourself, printer ink cartridges you can refill, champagne you can substitute with cheap sparking wine. You car is not going to run on much else other than what you get at the local station.

The forums are gay because of over-analysis of pointless clutter or the pointless clutter itself, or both?
