    Hi, Elliot. How does water play into this? The big two have Aquafina and Dasani. Am I correct that the 13 Billion gallons includes bottled water as a non-flavored non-carbonated drink or is water different. If not included that would explain how a growing population is consuming fewer drinks every year for a decade. An interesting stat might be the market share of filtered tap water vs. bottled spring water. Love your Econ70 thought provokeres!
