In Alaska a wholesale pound of king crab legs is cheaper than a gallon of milk.

Why is it that expensive?

It's in Barrrow, Alaska which is the northernmost and remotest point in alaska. It's above the arctic circle and mostly full of natives, which explains why stocking a supermarket there is extremely expensive, hence the prices.

I wonder how they afford that stuff, I imagine the income level isn't great there either.

I'm guessing it's there for the tourists and researchers on government/private grants and not the natives
