July 19 (Bloomberg) -- Bloomberg's Dominic Chu runs down the range in sushi prices in the U.S. as price hikes outpace the rise in inflation. He speaks on Bloomberg Television's "In The Loop."

I live in greenwich, conn., and i work in new york city, so i could beginning the rawest of all deals.

I am not the biggest fan, but i enjoy having it once in awhile.

And it will cost me more if i live and work in certain places.

Let's take a look at the rankings.

When it comes to sushi, new york tops the list in terms of the most expensive sushi in the metro area.

Los angeles comes in second.

San francisco, even though is close to the water, still about 12% higher.

The cheapest sushi that you will find is down in new orleans, louisiana.

They come in at 23% below the national average.

When it comes to the most expensive places, it is greenwich, conn.

The most expensive items cost on average $17.59. i am curious, you look at inflation, which there is not a tough.

How do sushi prices compare with a broader economy?

Prices were skyrocketing in 2011 to 2012, up about 5.5%, another 2% in this past year.

Take a look at regular inflation in the u.s.. wholesale prices are not going up across the board, but premium items, people are paying for them.

Those people on the high and are still paying up for their premium sushi.

We feel for you over there in greenwich.
