Let me just add to this with my own "Real Fact":

Water should NOT cost more than gasoline.

I volunteered some time to help sell food at a basketball game, bottled water was $3.50 for a 20 oz bottle. That's over $20 a gallon.
IT'S JUST WATER.
The naturally occuring thing that covers the majority of the surface of the earth. Compare to that gasoline, which is a highly processed petroleum product, something that must be drilled and pumped out from the depths of our earth.
Which one should be more costly?

Yes yes, I know fresh water is not as common as salt water, but you get my point.

Roswell, GA (Atlanta suburb)

True. Gasoline is way underpriced.

Wow, jimbrady I'm impressed. You must be from Europe or something because most Americans feel that gasoline is way overpriced. We get it for next to nothing in real terms.

BTW if you lived in Venezuela, gasoline is something like .30 cents a gallon.
