I was just wondering how much the basic things in life cost where you are in the world? I know it sounds quite sad, and looks it but hey, I was bored and I just realised the definition of "basics" in the food/items way is rather subjective, but anyway...
Just the average product which you may not necessarily buy (for example you may like an expensive brand for some reason which you can say, but this is just a regular branded questionairre). With Petrol prices here going down a fair bit and me being able to stomach small amounts of food now - it got me wondering. Feel free to add to the list, and just answer as many as you can. No need to go to the shops on my watch (could always use the Internet?).
For example if I saw 5 loaves of bread between £1.15 and £1.25, I'd say the average price is £1.20, also location helps. This is for the U.K
Luxury items...sort of
- A loaf of bread (no real difference between price for regular white or brown): £1.20
- A pint (568ml) of milk: £0.50
- A fruit of your choice (weight is 2lbs - 0.9kg of apples, in my case): £1.75
- A block of cheese of your choice + specify weight, (Stilton, in my case as it's by far my favourite): 220g, £2.00
- A 10 pack of bacon: £2.40
- A single tin of beans in tomato sauce (Heinz, if possible - with it being a branded export/import product): £0.70
- The average cost of one type of prescription drug (for example in the uk, if I were to get Tramadol, Morphine and a crate (32) of my medical drinks, it is classed as 3 seperate items: £22.95 (£7.65 x 3)
- A bottle of branded ketchup: Heinz, standard "squeezy" bottle, £1.95
- A 4 pack of beer: £4.50 (on average due to import of some brands)
- A pack of cigarettes (20): £6.66 (average of 10 packs)
- A litre of petrol (gas, in the USA) or Diesel if you run that*: Petrol - £1.31, Diesel - £1.38
- A drug of your choice, if you want (in my case, Cannabis, 8th of an Ounce): 3.5g, £20 (but an "eighth" is anywhere between 1.7 to 3g on average, depending on dealer and quality.
I could quite easily see something like this turn into a scavenger hunt...*rubs chin*
1 litre = 0.26 US Gallons
- The UK has the 2nd highest cost for Diesel in Europe, and the 10th highest for Petrol
