Water Replaces Soda As American's Favorite Drink, Again

Are you drinking more water? You're not alone! Soda is no longer the top drink in America. Plain old H20 has made a comeback as our favorite drink, again.

For more than two decades, soda was the No. 1 drink in the U.S. with consumption peaking in 1998 at 54 gallons a year, according industry tracker Beverage Digest. Americans drank just 42 gallons a year of water at the time.

Americans now drink an average of 44 gallons of soda a year, a 17 percent drop from the peak in 1998. Over the same time, the average amount of water people drink has increased 38 percent to about 58 gallons a year. Bottled water has led that growth, with consumption nearly doubling to 21 gallons a year.

It seems like a lot us are trying to make healthier choices when it comes to food and excercise, so this makes sense.
