Oil in Big Macs: Chart of the Day

Source: Gregor.us

The idea for this comparison of Oil to Big Macs, is that a Big Mac is representative of a basket of agricultural goods and thus compares the relative advantage of trading food for oil.  Whats interesting about this is that theoretically, it should be a somewhat inflation-adjusted measure of oil prices.  As of now it appears agricultural goods is undervalued relative to Oil. 

Interesting to see how the plays out in a pairs trade?
