situation, when a customer made a comment on the price of maple syrup(a
store brand 500ml glass bottle @ $7.99). I told him "gasoline is
cheaper"(recently local media have been harking over gas prices). I think he
then started to put it in some perspective.

to some other liquids is that there is no volume discount. For Coke or Pepsi
in my store a 1L bottle is $1.39, next time look at the prices between 1L
and 2L formats. The only way I think you could really get some sort of a
volume discount is if you negotiate a contract with an oil company, but
you'd pretty much need to have a fleet vehicles(buses, trucks, even
locomotives) to make it worth while to them.
