I do find it funny when Europeans rant about price tags in the US (and Canada) not including tax. It’s an inconsequential thing to rant about first of all, but we do have one major purchase that is tax-included and that’s gas (petrol). As a result almost no one knows how much they pay in tax to fill up their tank, and in a few places in the US taxes on it are egregiously high. On the other hand when buying say... art supplies I’m always faced with how much I pay in tax.
