I live in a mostly white, middle-class neighborhood and town. However, I'm not that far away from some poorer, minority dominated areas and once in a while, I find myself picking up a few items in a grocery or drug store in one of these areas out of convenience. My observation is this: Stuff costs more in the poor neighborhoods. Everything. Milk, bread, eggs, tylenol, baby food, you name it. Sometimes the disparity is significant like just a few days ago when I spent $17 for a 1oz bottle of infant mylecon that i can get for $14 at my local drug store. Just one more example of how poor people get the screwgie I suppose.
