The Average Cost of Things

How Much Does it Cost?

How much does [blank] cost, and am I paying too much for it? How much do other people pay for it? What determines the cost of it?

These are some of the questions we will help you answer on this website. We are currently compiling price data on a wide variety of products and services, and we publish the results right here on this website.

Note: This website is 100% unbiased. We do not sell the products we write about.

The best way to understand what we do is by seeing an example. Here is an article we did about the price of daycare in the United States:

The Average Cost of Daycare Services

The example above shows you what this website is all about -- helping you to put prices in perspective. We will take that same methodology and apply it to hundreds of products and services. Granted, this section of our website is still very young (launched in November 2009), so it might look a bit sparse. But over time, it will become a useful tool for anyone seeking price information.
