Prices in Dominican Republic March 1,2012

I like to keep people up to date on the cost of items in Dominican Republic as I can.

Exchange rate today (more or less things can go up and down a few cents many times a day)
*United States Dollar Buy RD$38.95
*United States Dollar Sell RD$39.08
*Euro Buy RD$52.00

Fuel Prices (the prices of gasoline and propane this morning as listed in the papers. Some places it could be a little lower or higher)
*Premium RD$277.50 = USD$7.12
*Regular RD$211.10 = USD$5.42
*Diesel RD$197.10 = USD$5.06
*Propane RD$103.40 = USD$2.65

Some imported food prices from the last week when I went shopping. These are food, staples and other items not made in Dominican Republic (other than 7up which is produced here)
*Heinz Relish (10oz) $87 = USD$2.23
*Heinz Ketchup (14oz) $83 = USD$2.13

I do not know what the prices are in USA or other countries. If anyone has these prices it would be very interesting to compare.
