It's an imperfect comparison, I'll grant you, but interesting nonetheless.
The investor news website ValueWalk did a chart this week: oil, priced per gallon — and that's important — versus other well-known liquids.
With a barrel of oil at 36 bucks as it is, today crude is 83 cents a gallon.
Milk? About $2.29 a gallon at my local Ralphs.
Even water's about a buck and half a jug.
Yes, we're talking raw commodity versus finished product but still interesting, no?
