Fixr.com put out an interesting map the other day with each state’s “cost obsession.” To find the answers, it performed the Google search “How much does * cost” for each state and its capital and noted the most common result.
The map has some expected results — Colorado and “weed,” Nevada and “prostitution,” Vermont and “cord of wood.” But there are also some unusual ones — “minor” in North Dakota, and “private investigator” in Ohio.
For you lawyers out there, several states had crime-related results, including Utah and “speeding ticket” and Delaware and “DUI.”
Maryland, incidentally, also had “DUI” as its cost obsession.
Insert your Bernard Pierce joke here.
