NYC groceries cheaper than in rest of the US  MAY 27 2011

It seems that item for item, food in New York City is actually cheaper than in many other parts of the country.

Using data from the ACNielsen HomeScan database, which employed bar-code scanners to track every purchase made by roughly 33,000 U.S. households in 2005, the two economists compared identical products sold in cities big and small, both at high-end grocery stores and discount retailers. In nearly every case, New York products were cheaper than in places such as Memphis, Indianapolis and Milwaukee.
