I'd like to open a neighborhood water purifying store/kiosk. And then I will compete locally with Ozarka/Arrowhead to deliver fresh/pure drinking water to your homes.
I will make custom designer water for wealth people who require a specific vitamin/mineral count or PH level.
Most water delivery companies use 5-gallon polycarbonate bottles containing Bisphenol A, an endocrine disruptor with many negative health implications. So if you're setting up to compete that might be one point where you could differ from the other companies.

Now, why do we feel so entitled to have a low gas price anyways? do we feel entitled because of our reliance on it?
Just because I like to stir up trouble -- if you answered yes to the last question, my answer is "fuck you, stop relying so much on it then and just pay the going rate. You don't bitch that much about Microsoft Windows costing $50 even though the CD costs only $0.10 to make-- gas is pretty fucking cheap already, you just consume so damn much of it. walk more, bike to work you fat ass."
That's right. Either that or get off your lazy fat ass and get a job that can support paying $10 a gallon for gas and $1000 monthly utility bill not to mention the $1000s a month you will be spending soon on food. Because if you're poor and can't afford to drive or fly the hundreds of miles it takes to be with your family on the holidays, or you can't afford not to work full time just to pay your utility and food costs while pursuing an education, it's your own damn fault.
