I cannot help while visiting the United States comparing the price of food versus the Trinidad and Tobago price.

The same package of strawberries that sells for TT$50 sells for US$1! I took my mother to lunch at a well established restaurant. The meal included a drink, an appetiser and main course for US$10!
I am extremely perplexed by the pricing of food and the exchange rate in Trinidad and Tobago. Whether local or foreign goods, the prices are unjustifiably inflated. Why are the currencies in most Caribbean states $2.70 or less to US$1 and in Trinidad and Tobago we are TT$7 to US$1?
The Cayman dollar is worth more than the US dollar while T&T is ranked the third wealthiest country in the western hemisphere.
