One of the things that really bothers me over the road is the way Truck Stops really seem to Rip off us Drivers when it comes to prices. One thing they do that is guaranteed to give me a cold angry feeling in my gut is selling water at 3 sometimes more dollars per gallon. And we arent talking Perrier here im talking Cheap hole in the ground water in a plastic jug. Next time you are in a truck stop notice that the water sold by the gallon almost always will read "spring water" Whats wrong with that? you might ask. Spring Water has to be the best. Right?....Well Maybe its better or maybe its not..... "spring water" could just be well water or pretty much anything. If it is marked "spring water" It has almost no quality standards it could come from just about anywhere, If it is marked Drinking Water at least you have govt. safety standards of quality it has to conform to. (just like your tap water) So basically if you want to have good quality water that you can absolutely feel safe drinking you may as well do what I do and get yourself a glass jug and fill up at the tap. or if you are adventurous then find an actual spring where you can see and taste the water first. You will save a ton of money!!! gee imagine Free Water!!!! who would have ever thought of such a thing!!!!! and by keeping it in a glass jug instead of plastic you avoid the nice chemicals you can get from drinking out of plastic not to mention the fact that long after im gone and pushing up daisies that plastic water bottle will still be there waiting to decompose...
