A dollar is supposed to be a dollar everywhere you go in the United States.

But thanks to different economic realities across the country, that George Washington can get you more bang for that buck than other places.

Take South Dakota for instance.

According to a 24/7 Wall St. report that calculated the value of a dollar in each state using data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis, the Mount Rushmore State has the sixth highest value for that dollar of all 50 states.

Those 100 pennies in South Dakota actually get you 113 in exchange. That's just three cents behind the nation's leader - Mississippi.
