How much does it cost to live in America: the 5 most expensive and cheapest states

There are pros and cons to living in any of the American states, but if you are considering moving or just want to know about the cost of living in different states of the United States, pay attention to the rating of the most expensive and cheapest states for living, compiled GOBankingRates.

If you are planning to relocate, it is important to evaluate the state in different ways. Take New Mexico, for example. On the one hand, the state is renowned for its incredibly rich cultural history, delicious chili peppers, Breaking Bad filming locations and the stunning Georgia O'Keeffe Museum. It is also a great place to live on a budget, with annual expenses nearly $ 7 below the national average. On the other hand, New Mexico is home to the so-called "tarantula hawk wasp", which combines the names of three terrifying predators into one, and is numerous (or threatening) so much that government officials made it a state insect.

Take another example, this time at the opposite end of the budget spectrum. New York is filled with incomparable entertainment, numerous wineries and its own fascinating history from Montauk to Massapequa. But the living wage index supports the ceiling, and the cost of housing alone is as much as $ 23 a year, which is twice as much as the national average. In addition, according to the publication, in New York there are also creatures that are not easy to get along with: they are New Yorkers.

Since deciding where to live is a tricky question - and it's actually very subjective to compare Broadway to the old town of Albuquerque - the publication looked at the cost of living in each state. In some states, the costs are so high that you might start looking at the tarantula hawk wasp as a friendly addition to the neighborhood. In other states, you can save on all your monthly bills and expenses. Full list - here.
