It’s easy for United States citizens to walk into a grocery store and pick up the items that they need. However, it’s not always the same case in many other countries, where simple food staples like milk and salt can cost exponentially more money than in the United States. Which countries around the world have the highest and lowest prices for food and goods as compared to the U.S.? TitleMax created an infographic titled How Do U.S. Food and Product Prices Compare to the Rest of the World that compares U.S. prices of popular products to other countries around the world. One kilogram of sugar costs about $1.10 in the United States but can cost nearly four times more in Lebanon ($4.26), while a kilogram of sugar costs just $0.40 in Iran. Comparatively, in the U.S., a 0.5-liter bottle of Coca-Cola costs $2.75, one of the highest prices on the planet. The world average for the popular drink is just $0.97. See how other food and product prices compare around the world!
