Also worth noting: San Jose rents increased 2.8% in June, with 1-bedrooms at $2,180. Washington DC prices also went up 3.3%, but it still has a lower median rent at $2,170 for 1-bedrooms. Chicago and Miami have also seen increased rents. But it's not all bad news -- Oakland, while still one of the most expensive ($1,850), has seen rent decreases, as have Denver, Minneapolis, and Baltimore.
All in all, everything is still terrible, but if you're not living in San Francisco, then at least it could be worse? And if you are living in San Francisco, good for you, stop bragging.
