Please be advised that these prices are based on the inflated bank rate which is approximately 1 USD to 119 DZD at the moment of this post. However. These prices and the actual currency is based on the parallel market price of 1 USD to 186 DZD as of this post. Please update conversion. The accurate value of money can be found at devisesquare.com

there is a quite a BIIIG MISTAKE about the milk price it's in a range from 25 DZD (wich is almost undrinkable even sometimes tainted. and it's not findable everywhere) you can see it as an exception because it's subsidized. the real range is from 70 DZD to 95 DZD.

By the way the price of banana recently increased to almost 500 DZD and is untreacable (you can almost nowhere find them)
