Salt in the past used to be more valuable than gold, they tell us. Is it possible that they are wrong?

Just because something gets repeated a lot, does not make it true. Sometimes, incredible facts are incredible because they are rubbish. I have lost count of the number of times I have been told that salt was once more valuable than gold. If it was, why didn't they use it to buy gold? Why were the areas with easy access to salt, like coasts, not just festooned in gold?
