Published:  23 July, 2008

A price audit of sixteen alcoholic beverages in American bars and restaurants has found that Oklahoma City is one of the cheapest places to buy them.

Washington DC was at the top of Boston-based pricing intelligence firm Intellaprice's study for five of the sixteen beverages market tested.

In Washington, bars charged an average $5.05 (2.44) for a vokda and tonic, compared to $4.02 (1.94) in Oklahoma.

There were variations in regional beer prices of between $0.75 (36p) and and $1.50 (72p), even with in the same restaurant chains.

"Clients are increasingly requesting our assistance in providing comprehensive pricing intelligence as they grapple with rising fuel costs and minimum wage changes," said Intellaprice President Leslie Kerr.
