1470840624524

This is a report from USA today which I thought quite interesting. Note Texas is not mentioned.

The Bureau of Economic Analysis, which published in July its report for 2014 prices for household consumption across the country. Your dollar will go a lot farther — 30% farther, in fact — in states like Mississippi and Arkansas THAN say Washington, D.C., and Hawaii.
This of course is 2 years ago, there may be a few changes but basically it gives you an idea of where it would be cheaper to live. If you want to move.

The states where your dollar (rounded to the nearest cent) is worth the most are:

1. Mississippi ($1.15)

2. Arkansas ($1.14)

3. Alabama ($1.14)

4. South Dakota ($1.14)

5. Kentucky ($1.13)

6. West Virginia ($1.12)

7. Ohio ($1.12)

8. Missouri ($1.12)

9. Oklahoma ($1.11)

10. Tennessee ($1.11)

11. Iowa ($1.11)

The cost of living in 35 states was below the national average.
The areas where your dollar is worth the least are the District of Columbia (85 cents), Hawaii (86 cents), New York (86 cents), New Jersey (87 cents), and California (89 cents).
