Your cool excludes taxes imposed on Raleigh residents.
For example: automobile property tax averages $600 per year
Automobile inspection+registration averages $70 per year.
Personal property taxes on pets, tools, recreational items, jewelry, etc. Average 350.00 per year.
Gas tax is .56/gal state
Sales tax is on EVERYTHING, FOOD, CLOTHES, NECESSITIES,etc.

There is a very particular issue about the prices in NC, and US in general. The prices don't include taxes, (7% in NC) and the services like taxi, restaurant, bar tenders, and a bunch of other crappy services that supposely should get not less than 15% tip...
