Finally, A First Place Finish For Something Good

Usually when these types of lists come out, I wince a little. It isn't every day that we get to claim the top spot for something good.

According to the fine folks over at FinanceBuzz, Texas actually beat the national average for the cost of a bottle of champagne.

Not only did we beat the average, we set the curve when it comes to how affordable our champagne is.

Keep that in mind when you're hitting up your preferred store for a bottle.

Compared To The Rest Of The Country, We're A Bubbly Bargain

FinanceBuzz states that the average cost of a bottle of champagne is roughly $55.85. If you were to have asked me to give an average price off of the top of my head, I would have gone with fifty bucks. That seems about right to me.

However, Texas decided to beat the average by $11.97. That's over ten bucks we're saving. Not too bad.

The average cost of a bottle in Texas is $43.88. Again, not too bad.

So, Who's Responsible For Dragging That Average Up?

Thank Kansas. They're at the opposite end of the study. Where we're paying, on average, in the neighborhood of $43 for a bottle of champagne, in Kansas they're paying an average of $72.99.

They better be making that with unicorn tears at that price.

So if you're looking for affordable champagne, know that you're in the right place. Cheers, Texas. Here's to you.
