How much is a tank of gas worth?

The only correct response to this question is:

To whom?

My wife would probably pay $50 for a tank of gas.

My 7yo daughter wouldn’t pay a dime.

Which one of them is right?

They both are.

Here’s the thing...

What something is worth (i.e., it’s value) is NOT a property of the thing.

It’s a perception in the mind of a human.

Don’t fall into the trap of thinking that what you do is worth something in an abstract general sense.

If you can’t find someone who wants to give you money for it, it’s effectively worth nothing.
