Icon605 Oil for bottled water

Comment: I was wondering about a claim that
I've heard from a few people and on the radio, presented as true. The gist
of it is that you should never buy bottled water, because whatever the
size of plastic container holds the water, it takes four times the volume
of oil to make the bottle as that bottle holds water. In other words, a
20-oz water bottle requires 80 oz of oil to make. I can't believe this is
true, because it seems that with the rise in oil prices, they couldn't
sell a bottle of Aquafina for 89 cents.
