I have detested bottled water since their popularity in the late 90s, when people started walking around with bottles as if they couldn’t find potable water WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF ANYWHERE. Now I have some data to back up my disgust:
Ounce for ounce, it costs more than gasoline, even at today’s high gasoline prices; depending on the brand, it costs 250 to 10,000 times more than tap water. Globally, bottled water is now a $46 billion industry.
