I think a lot of it has to do with the thickness of the plastic, more than the plastic itself. The only time I've had problems is with regular pop or water bottles and 1gal milk jugs, both of which are pretty thin. Commercial containers are a lot thicker, and designed to last a lot longer.

Could also be that the pressure in pop bottles weakens the plastic, and makes it more permeable.
