STANISLAUS COUNTY–

Californians are seeing more pain at the pump after gas prices rose $.07 in the past week.

“It is like do I want to eat or do I want to work,” said driver Mary Cortez. “I can put in $150.00 just for work in one week.”

But compared to some household items, gas does not look so bad.

One gallon of Diet Snapple would cost $10.32.

A 20 oz. bottle of Gatorade for $1.59 also costs more than $10.

One gallon of NyQuil would also total more than $170.00, while a $.99 bottle of Scope would cost $84.84 a gallon.

“I would never do that. I would never buy that much Snapple,” said Cortez.

The fact of the matter is, however, most people do spend that much money.
