Go to the home page and then click on any city/town in the US state you reside. The COL info is about 1/5 of the way down the page.

Seattle is listed as 126.5. WHere I grew up (Chicago) is 114, and where I went to college is probably ridiculously low.

North Hollywood, CA: 154.5
Phoenix, AZ: 97.0
Staten Island, NY: 160.0
Berkeley, CA: 281.0 (WOW! Well, it IS a college town in the Bay Area)
Northridge, CA: 150.5 (its not really that far from North Hollywood)

All of these are based on the zip codes I lived in.
