Shimano hierarchy. bottom to top

I am wondering how exactly shimano group lines stand in relation to one another. I heard something like Dura Ace is the most expensive? What is the least expensive?

Any link or info would be greatly appreciated.

I think the lists are a bit old.
I noticed now it says 1997 above them!
