My First Python Scraping with Beautiful Soup

I recently needed to scrape a cost of living calculator for data.  To save time I wrote a Python program that would pull the data for all the cities.  It was my first case of scrapping a website in Python.  I used Beautiful Soup as I had heard other data scientists mention using this in a podcast.  The documentation provided by the developers is well written and easy to follow.  It is hosted on GitHub in the cgr-work repository.
