A man from the UK came across the pond to the states and was shocked by the huge difference in prices of simple things like the Big Mac in America. He started McCheapest.com, a website that compares prices of Big Macs across the United States. The website finds that the most expensive Big Mac is a rest stop in Lee, Massachusettes. It goes for $8.09. You can find the cheapest Big Mac in Stigler, Oklahoma for $3.49, that is quite a difference!
In the Des Moines metro area, the cheapest Big Mac is at the McDonald's in Clive on Forest Lane for $4.39, while the most expensive is in Grinnell for $5.19.
