Can You Guess Which One Is Heavier, Car or Soft Drink Shipments?

All of a sudden when someone asks such a question I am sure no one will be able to answer. Or else the answer can be "Soft drinks are just liquid, how can they be compared to the weight of cars? And Can they as heavy as huge number of cars?"

Ok, let's do some math to find out the answer for this question.

A liter of soft drink weighs about 1 kilogram. At 65% bottle/cans (exclusive of the 35% fountain sales), this is over 400 billion pounds of carbonated water unnecessarily shipped with the syrup. Let's not neglect the weight of the cans/bottles. To put this in perspective, this is the weight of 100 million cars. In 2007, 16 million cars, SUVs and trucks were put on the market in the US. Each and every car sold in the United States over the past 6 years weighs much less than the weight of the excess water shipped EVERY year with bottled soft drinks.
So if you have guessed it is cars then you have mistaken and we are happy for providing you the real stats.
