There’s a new map that shows how much $100 is really worth in each state.
The Tax Foundation used federal data on regional price variations including taxes and cost of living to calculate just how far a Ben Franklin goes and Mississippi tops the list with a Benjamin being worth about $116 in the state.
Mississippi was followed by Arkansas ($114.16), Missouri ($113.51), Alabama (113.51) and South Dakota ($113.38).
The District of Columbia came in last with $100 really being worth $84.60… it was followed by Hawaii ($85.32), New York ($86.66), New Jersey ($87.64), and California ($88.57).
