Which is best for long-term storage of soda: cans or plastic bottles?

I looked into alternatives such as a single-serve soda fountain. Even a single-serve residential unit seems too expensive and bulky. I tried Soda Stream, but their syrups are not as good as the name brand sodas. I'm still open to alternatives.

Do I go with can, plastic bottles, or do you know of a good alternative?

My guess would be glass bottles.

Edit: Thinking of soda sold in glass bottles, like Coca Cola.

Other than a few expensive brands, does any soda come in a class bottle these days?

Is coca-cola cheap in the USA?
In my country the prize is about 2 US dollar for a half litre bottle. 3.5 US dollar for 2x1.5 litre bottles. I hardly ever drink soda, I would guesstimate a small bottle once a month or so. My favourite is Dr Pepper.

Why store soda? It is not very beneficial or nutritious. The space required can be easily put to better use.

A person can get a 2 Litter bottle for as little as $1 if it is on sale. That same bottle is still less than $2 when it's not on sale.

When purchasing them in 12-ounce cans, which it looks like I have to do for long-term storage, soda gets slightly more expensive.

Should I store water instead? Oh, wait, soda already has water in it.

In a survival situation, do you want to drink water with a meal when you are accustomed to drinking iced tea or a soda with a meal?

Water is actually healthier than soda or iced tea. If you must have flavor, go with the iced tea.

True. Ever since I was a child, I had beverages such as milk, juice, or iced tea with a meal. Even when we were poor, we still had iced tea or something.

In a survival situation, one needs to, as much as possible, maintain what they are accustomed to. Otherwise, a survival situation would be that much more depressing.
