For the past decade, Duck® brand Tape has been the #1 brand of duct tape in America. That means they've sold a LOT of rolls of Duck Tape! How much is "a LOT?" Well, the following statistics will give you an idea.
In 2001, the length of Duck Tape sold could
Cross the United States from Portland, Maine to Portland, Oregon 489 times.
