That's easy.
Devo had a hit with it.
And Greyhounds stop at every single city.

One might score (considerably) lower on ailments/longevity or grooming/cost...

 
Yeah, they apparently can have a lot of health issues; I've known a few people who have adopted retired racing greyhounds.

This would be a chart that needs a lot of disclaimers. First, are these prices adjusted for inflation? Seems like they would not be able to but a quick google says average car price was 18K in 1995, 37K in 2018. You get a lot more car for that, but 18 dollars in 95 equates to 30 dollars in 2019, and yeah it's a mess. But I can see how they could make that New Cars line stay relatively flat.

The idea of the chart is to compare the rate of inflation across different goods and services. The overall rate of inflation is normalized out. The nature of this kind of chart is that there have to be items above and below the axis.

The point they're making is that goods that are subsidized or otherwise have their costs hidden show faster price increases than goods whose pricing is transparent.

There is a meta point as well: we drive cost out of goods and services by using fewer of the resources required to deliver them, one being labor. The cost of childcare, for instance, is dominated by labor costs. We can't automate to make a daycare worker more productive, so if labor costs rise faster than inflation so will the cost of labor-intensive goods and services.

after eyeballing this chart again, i dont see how the new cars or TV trends make any sense?  a 98 Chevy Malibu had a price of ~$16k, and today has a price of ~$22k, or about 28% inflation.  TV quality has definitely improved, but the average price is probably slightly higher than in 1998?  Doubtful cell phone service actually dropped 50%?  No idea about software pricing, but also looks suspect.  Oh well.

Yeah, it's hit and miss but would be fun to ponder. Most of Wyoming's are just lame, natch. But I did learn that a line in Bruce Springsteen's "From Small Things" is "...with a Wyoming County real estate man," not "moved to Wyoming with a real estate man."

 
This conversation just made me think of this one, not sure if it is on map or not:
