Muffler Blows Water in a hot weather.

I have a Dodge Intrepid 2000 Base V6 2.7L with 127100 miles.
Is it normal for the exhaust (muffler) to blow small amount of water in a hot weather? I was running all day and when I got home, I noticed that there are water coming out from the exhaust. Thanks.


P.S.
I double checked it. It is water not gas or oil.

Probably normal, ethanol additives in gas increase condensation.

just as a precaution, check your coolant level. considering you have a 2.7, check your oil while you're at it.

Thank you for the advise. I am monitoring my coolant level and it seems not decreasing.
My friend told me it was probably the A/C but I have no A/C in my car.
For extra information, I am using Chevron with Techron Regular (87 octane) gas and Penzoil Ultra 5W30 and currently living in CA. Thanks guys. I am new into this.

One thing to keep in mind - if it was coolant in the exhaust - it will have a slightly 'sweet' odor. 2.7 owners have to be extra-diligent in watching/listening for abnormalities.
