This is when you are paying more for a Venti-cup of Starbucks (the 20 ounce cup, $2.45), than for a gallon of gas ($2.04 in Alabama for unleaded).
Think about that.
Twenty-five years ago, you could have walked in and asked for a extra-large cup of coffee from some Joe-Blow gas station, and it would have been 40-cents max. Now? You are convinced that $2.45 for a Venti-cup of coffee makes perfect sense.
