10 US cities with highest food prices
When it comes to keeping your monthly budget at an acceptable level, spending on food is crucial - but, as it turned out, even this generally accepted category of spending depends on where you live.
According to the US Department of Agriculture, the average American spends 9,9% of his personal income on food - 5,2% is spent on food and 4,7% on restaurants and eating out, writes Business Insider.
The cost of products varies in different states of the USA and increases significantly in coastal cities, according to a new Rent.com report.
The report examines the cost-of-living index data of the Council for Social and Economic Research, and compares the costs of standard list products - milk, eggs, coffee, and sugar.
The study also rated 257 cities, counties and districts in a report based on product availability.
Here are the top 10 cities and regions of the United States, where products will cost you more:
