When I lived in Venezuela, we paid MORE for water than gas! We had to buy bottled water because we couldn't drink what came out of the faucet. We had to cook with the bottled water, make ice cubes, etc.

Anyway, we had five-gallon bottles of water delivered to our house, six bottles a week. The price of a five gallon bottle was greater than the price of five gallons of gas. If I recall right, gas was about 14-cents a gallon at that time.

That was ten years ago, but I doubt the situation is any different now.
