I've played around with this tool, and while it may be good for an *estimate*,
I've found that it seems to place the city I live in, Phoenix, at the bottom of
the scale in terms of cost of living. Every city I've ever compared it to with
this tool comes out requiring a higher salary. I find it difficult to believe
that I'm in one of the cheapest places to live in the country. I'm just not
that lucky!
