I am familiar with all of them, and prefer to live in none of them unless I was forced to.

Also, I'm fairly certain that Indiana,Michigan, Ohio, Kentucky, and West Virginia all have similar cost of living ratings to the states listed above.

Cost of living could certainly be one consideration. Here's another you might want to consider when thinking about a move...
