This can’t be right, or location theory upended

The flight from Oslo airport to Bergen airport costs less than the cab ride from Oslo airport to downtown Oslo.  Blame the taxi cartel if you wish (is there one in Norway?), but relative to food and other prices that cab ride seemed like a bargain.  Fifty minutes in the cab cost only three or so kung pao chickens with water.  Imagine how location theory should look when it is cheapest to travel far and costliest to make small moves.  I am reminded of Venice, where getting your shopping cart up through the steps to cross a canal or two is sometimes harder than taking a train or boat out of the place altogether.
