    I felt the same way when I went to London last month and had to pay the insane 17% VAT TAX on my Hotel, Food, etc :(

    Don't forget that the US price doesn't include Sales Tax, which varies from State to State.

    It doesn't equalise the price by any means, but it does close the gap a bit.
