Prescription drugs cost 14% more in SF than national average
San Francisco Chronicle

When Christina Hale ducked into a CVS on San Francisco’s Market Street on Thursday to pick up a prescription she’d accidentally left at home in Indianapolis, the price tag came as a surprise.

Hale, who was in town on business, usually pays $10 for a monthlong supply of the medication. But at the San Francisco pharmacy, she was charged $11.99 for just a five-day supply.
