Supermarkets sell beer cheaper than water. The muckety-mucks are afraid this will cause a binge-drinking crisis. At major supermarket chains, customers can purchase beer for about $4 for two liters. We can only hope that this trend crosses the big pond and we can get our Old Milwaukee or Schlitz at a brand-new cut rate.

Implications - This trend signals towards the fact that water is a precious resource that is slowly but surely dwindling. The knowledge that beer can be purchased cheaper is worrisome because water prices are on the rise. Although the water crisis may be a problem in the future, this trend sheds some light on the what is to come and the idea that people may need to start paying more attention to the planet they live on.
