The Local reports that a McDonald’s Big Mac billboard placed at the border of Sweden and Norway taunts Norwegians by showing the cost difference of Big Macs in the two countries.
Now why would someone drive all the way from Norway to buy a Big Mac in Sweden?
Perhaps because a Big Mac in Norway costs about a third more at 93 Swedish kronor. Also known as about $14.30 in U.S. currency. While the Swedish Big Mac only costs 59 Swedish kronor a.k.a about $10.62 U.S.
