Rising Gas Prices

Just so you all know, Gas prices may be outrageous, but coffee prices are a bit worse. Lets do a little math shall we? Calculators ready!

The average American coffee costs $2.45. The average size of said coffee is 9 ounces. Now divide 128 ( a gallon) by 9. You should roughly get 14.2 . Then times 14.2 by 2.45 and find out how much we pay per gallon for our Espresso. You should get $34.79. Pretty incredible.

Our solution: stop buying consumer coffee! We'd been calling Starbucks "Four-bucks", but now they're all following suit.

And....if you add the cost of the gas it takes to get to your local "Four Bucks", wow, you are talking big bucks then!!
