To research local prices, we are using a national list of goods and services for which prices are regularly gathered.  To this, we are also adding a few new items that are not included on the national list [*]. 

 

In addition to local prices, we will be looking at what we call ‘the rest of the story.’  For instance, if you wanted to see a movie that has just been released, how far would you have to drive and how long would it take you to get there?
