Perhaps you’ve heard by now that Juneau has topped another “most expensive _______” list. The culprit this time? The McDonald’s Quarter Pounder with cheese.
And here it is:
This new honor comes from the Quarter Pounder Index (QPI) billed as a basic cost of life estimator from the group NerdWallet. The QPI is NerdWallet’s effort to help people understand the purchasing power of a dollar by using cheeseburgers.
Juneau’s Quarter Pounder with Cheese came in at $4.82.
The country’s cheapest Quarter Pounder is approximately 3,000 miles away in Conway, Arkansas where the Quarter Pounder rings up at $2.24.
The Quarter Pounder pictured here was purchased at Juneau’s only McDonald’s, however it now costs $4.99 and totaled $5.24 with sales tax.
Anchorage and Fairbanks are ranked fifth and sixth respectively for the cost of Quarter Pounders.
