Powershell and Azure pricing

Sometimes it is difficult to calculate prices for Azure. Especially when you have a lot of machines. What to do? It is easy:

$request = Invoke-WebRequest -Uri https://azure.microsoft.com/api/v1/pricing/virtual-machines/calculator/?culture=en-us
$offers = $request.Content | ConvertFrom-Json

$offers.offers.'standard-d11v2'.prices | select -Property "us-east*"
