True. Here too, but where I live is a mix that has changed over from rural poverty to yuppy bedroom communities. If you get workers who grew up poor out in the country like we did, you find pretty reasonable prices. If you get the contractor driving a $70,000 pickup truck, you get prices that reflect his life style rather than mine.
