Depending on where you live in these United States $100 isn’t really $100. In some places it’s worth far less, but good news for those of you living in Mississippi, you’re rich!

At least according to new research done by The Tax Foundation, a non-profit organization that used recently released data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis to create a map showing just how far your $100 will go.

Looks like some of those flyover states might be a good place to do a little shopping, huh, coastal people? Especially for those of you in the District. You could go hog wild if you took some of your cash and stocked up in Mississippi.
