There was a program on British tv last night that highlighted some of the
price  differences between the UK and the USA. British family shopping in
New York and an American family buying identical items in York. All the
items bought in York cost more than those bought in New York, at least one
by as much as 100%.
As I remember things, prices are even higher in Sweden but I cant believe a
K&N filter at $128, the most expensive that I've ever seen was $75.
