I wish for things like this Northern Virginia could be it's own state - for statistic purposes. Sometimes we get our own reports separately but it depends on who's conducting the study.

Those who live in cities usually have a higher cost of living than those who live in the country. We live in NC but our cost of living is lower than the NC figure listed. For the true cost of living where you live, look up your individual town on City-Data.

Mar. 2016 cost of living index in Mineral Springs: 83.3 (low, U.S. average is 100)

Our cost of living has recently gone up a couple of points because of some really selfish parents putting demands on our school system.

To be fair though Virginia ranks pretty good even considering that...

Oregon makes zero sense to me here.

Outside of the Philadelphia area, PA is a pretty affordable state.
