With a long weekend approaching and the price of gas being the way it is, a road trip seems a little ominous. In this state alone, traffic has been down this summer about 6% with an expected 750,000 cars on the road this weekend. (from Maine Business)

I'm sure a lot of us will spend the weekend in a car so I thought we could use a little gas price cheering up. Here is how much a gallon costs in terms of some of life's other important liquids:

Budweiser: $8.88
Hershey's syrup: $13.23
Coffee: $17.44
Smirnoff vodka: $18
Head and Shoulders shampoo: $37.74
Salsa: $40

Robitussin DM: $109.76
Sunscreen: $160
Chanel #5: $15,200
