"Da street value on dat gas is ABC" as if gas was a drug or they were living in Mad Max times, and I turned it off. I couldn't take that level of stupidity.
The phrase is perfectly acceptable to use for any product regardless of its price, rarity or legality.
It can be used in all situations where the price you pay as a consumer is different from the price the supplier paid becasue he bougght in bulk , or knows a guy etc.
"street value" just means "retail price" ffs.
That said , the films do get pretty stupid , you should avoid , especially if your limit is using the phrase "street value"
I'm sorry, but that's stupid.
The street value of marshmallows, is ABC...
That's something that is never said because there is no street value for marshmallows. So, it sounds weird and stupid to talk about candy as if it were some black market product. There is no black market for gas and people aren't gassing up their cars in some back alley or walking around with cans full of gas they just bought off a street corner.
yeah , i get what your saying , but
a) you can use street value in place of "retail" for legit products
b) when your tanker full of gas is stolen the value of the gas drops , creating a differential in prices between your stolen gas , and other legally purchased gas , necessitating the use of the phrase street value.
and thirdly , like i said before this is one of least most stupid things in the films, even if it is stupid , its up against some stiff competition , a veritable litany of stupid plot twists and car stunts and decisions etc
its at the bottom of the list of stupid things that happen in the films.
Top of the list , for me, is when they steal a bank vault by towing it out the bank with a couple of muscle cars. Not a little safebox like when they do the same in the cowboy films , i mean a vault the size of a house.
