Oil Cheaper Than Coke?

An oil exec claims that oil is cheaper than Coke.

So?

Oil is cheaper than a lot of things. Like a house, or a car, or bottled water. Well, fancy bottled water. Maybe it’s even cheaper than Pepsi.

I see an important distinction between Oil and Coke. I don’t have to (and I don’t) drink Coke, or any sort of soda for that matter. If I want to work, I need to drive to work. And since nearly every car out there runs on some sort of petroleum, I have to buy gas.

Statements like these just attempt to confuse the matter. But in reality, it makes the exec look quite foolish.
