Ironically, considering our city's mantra, when it comes to the strength of our dollar, the results are quite...normal.  $100 will get you pretty close to $100 worth of goods ($99.30).  I don't know about you, but with outliers like San Francisco ($83.13) and Washington DC ($84.96)  making headlines for the lack of the buying strength of their dollar, I'm more than satisfied that our city, just this once, is considered "normal".  To see more, check out the original findings at Tax Foundation's website here.
