I spotted these food prices in some US grocery store catalogues. They are all much cheaper than prices in Australia for similar items.
As a comparison, $2 per pound of chicken breasts would be equivalent to about $5 per kilogram, which would be about $6 Australian (AUD). The cheapest I can buy chicken breasts for its about $8 AUD, and is often $12 AUD per kg; same for pork. Avocados where I live are cheap if they are $1.70 AUD each, and are often $3.40 each. And I don’t think I’ve ever been able to get peppers (capsicum) for that sort of price.
But this one is the biggie! I pay $160 AUD per month just for cable TV (and not 200 HD channels either, and not even cable – instead satellite that drops out in bad weather), another $130/month for internet and phone and definitely not 60 Mbps (the maximum where I live is 24 Mbps, but the reality is more like 15), and another $70/month for mobile phone. That’s some $360/month for what this US company is advertising at $30 / month. No, I know nothing about this company, its services, or its reliability, but I wonder why we pay 10x what the US pays for similar services? Those Australian prices seem like a rip-off to me!
