Phoenix among cheapest places for groceries according to price data

Phoenix has some of the cheapest groceries around the country, according to new cost-of-living data.

According to Yahoo , general grocery items are cheaper than those in other states, especially New York, where a gallon of milk can cost $5.29. Here in Phoenix, milk costs about $2.76.

Beer, bread and water are also below the average prices around the country.

Phoenix can keep prices low probably because we have so many warehouses, trucks and trains bringing merchandise through the city, Yahoo says.

Surprisingly, Alaska also has lower costs than many other states in the country.

Hawaii residents pay some of the highest costs for groceries. A gallon of milk can cost above $6.50 on the islands.

The data was collected from Numbeo, a site that calculates costs in different places around the world.

Numbeo also tracks data on crime, pollution, home prices, health and more.
