In Singapore, the average price for a loaf of bread is $3.71, a bottle of wine is $23.78, 20 cigarettes go for $9.66 and a liter of gasoline is $1.56.
In Damascus, the average price for a loaf of bread is 60 cents, a bottle of wine is $3.35, 20 cigarettes go for $1.55 and a liter of gasoline is 50 cents.
