Don't take my word for it. Look into it yourself.

You will need to know what overhead is, and what a profit margin is to understand it. Better get a dictionary.

You're so funny! I love the fact that you try and do psyops on people but it's like playground level abilities. You're cute :)

Do you know what the profit margin is on a gallon of milk?

Do you know what the profit margin is on a gallon of water?

Compare that to the profit margin of a gallon of gas.

I predict you will not answer my questions honestly because the truth conflicts with your world view.

And i'm not just cute, i'm damned cute.

Profit margin for whom? Farmer makes about $1.00/gallon according to the people I know who run dairies and according to most market research. Now...different farmers have different qualities of milk and some may receive a little more or a little less.

Since the average gallon of milk here is about $2.75 / gallon that leaves $1.75 per gallon. So...split that between the producer who pasteurizes/homogonizes and adds or removes products to the milk, the delivery company if separate, the wholesale marketer who buys large milk purchases and then sells to smaller stores, and to the actual stores who carry the milk for you to buy. That's not a lot of profit. I know from experience, a good milk producing cow costs about $3,500.00 a year to maintain. That doesn't include the costs it takes to run a dairy, pass inspections, pay for water, pay for cleaning, pay for milking machines, etc.

In reality...nobody's making a lot of money here. Thanks for letting me prove that. Oh...and btw, if you're dumb enough to pay $4.00 or more per gallon because of the specific retail chain you buy from...that's your own fault.

I knew you wouldn't answer honestly so I will.

Profit margin on a gallon of milk is around 39%

Profit margin on a gallon of water can be anywhere from 50% up to 200% depending on the brand you buy.

Profit margin on a gallon of regular gasoline is around 7%

I buy gas from Kroger and with current prices and my discount its $2.85/gallon.
