A metro population of 2 million people is not considered a major city?

Orlandos METRO area has 2 million ppl. The city itself has 230,000

I don't find that list surprising considering the cost of doing business in those cities and cost of living.I thnik they just picked a sampling since I didn't see the many of the largest. I take it since they have not listed such cities as LosAngeles;New york and Houston ;so why include Orlando.

And yet they included San Francisco, Oakland and San Jose, go figure.. not surprised at all to see that auto repair is expensive in the place where everything else is too.

What I like about NYC is you can always find someone for cheaper. I also like that you can get a flat fixed on the street for $15 or less.
