It's fair when so many people live there for the costly benefits. The western coast states of California and Washington have oil refineries, but their gasoline prices remain above $3 per gallon.
Seattle gasoline: approx $3.14 / gallon
Seattle Diet Coke: approx $2 / gallon (sale)
Seattle diet cola: approx $1.60 / gallon (normal)
Seattle Milk: under $3 / gallon
Seattle filtered water: $1.75 / 5 gallons
Seattle sugary soda pop: add approx $1.18 per 2 liter bottle of sugary drink tax. Revenue has been used for education, remedial education, and social welfare services. After Seattle soda tax, Costco says case of Gatorade costs $26.33 instead of $15.99. Current Seattle mayor Durkin has already diverted a large amount of soda tax revenue into homeless services (despite the original education reason for the tax).https://www.marketwatch.com/story/2633-instead-of-1599-a-case-costco-shows-seattle-customers-just-how-much-soda-tax-costs-them-2018-01-10
