Ever wonder what things cost in your city or country vs other countries?

I did Manchester vs Dallas because I think they are similar cities.

Not capitals, but major cities in their respective countries.

Interesting.

Your petrol is dirt cheap compared to ours.
House prices vary a lot too, We pay more to rent but less to buy.

The average wage diffence is huge too.

Your petrol is down mostly to taxes.

It really stark when you compare Dallas to say Copenhagen.

You would think the average wage there would be a lot higher cosidering how expensive the cost of living is.

Compare your col with London...also a very expensive place to live.

I guess folks in Glasgow are jealous of your weather. Razz

Don't tell Quill, but I am jealous of San Diego weather (not San Francisco at all).

England weather is like Texas weather on its head -- chilly in general, but often really unpredictable. Oh, and they call a stretch of days with highs over 80 a "heat wave" Rolling Eyes

We haven't had a day this year when the heating hasn't been on...especially in the evening.
