Khabarovsk Tops Moscow as Most Expensive City

The far eastern city of Khabarovsk beat Moscow for the title of Russia's most expensive city for households, a report presented in the Public Chamber said Monday.

The report, made by members of the chamber's working group on agriculture, industry and groceries, estimated consumer prices across Russia and showed that Khabarovsk has the highest monthly expenses: 16,335 rubles per household ($500).

Moscow, notorious for its high prices, came in fourth after Yekaterinburg and Krasnoyarsk, Interfax reported.

Together with Omsk, Khabarovsk, St. Petersburg and Krasnoyarsk, Moscow was ranked as one of the cities with the most expensive gasoline.

The report said that expenses for car ownership and utilities account for the biggest share of overall costs.
