Why is it so expensive to buy bottled water?
When I go into a deli for a sandwich, I'm blown away by the price of bottled water. In many cases, the price for (individual) bottled water is exactly the same as just about every other drink in the store. That's crazy.
When you buy water by the case, it's dirt cheap, but for some reason when you buy it by the bottle the price is off the charts. I paid $2.25 for a 16 ounce bottle of water at Subway recently. That's the same price they charge for most of the other drinks they sell, which contain far more expensive ingredients such as milk, sugar, juices, teas, etc.
To me, that's simply a rip-off.
