That's like asking which is cheaper, GM or Ford.

It is such a general question that it is impossible to answer. Both states have many towns and cities which all vary greatly in price. Some towns in CT will be more expensive than some towns in NJ and some towns in NJ will be more expensive than some towns in CT.

Where in each state is the question and what activities do you like.

NJ is a crossroads with major roads to all the reknown destinations. You can get lost in the Conn 'wilderness' and drive quite a while to 'destinations'.

When my daughter lived in Storrs working for the UoC, food and especially gas prices were thru the roof compared to nj. NJ gas prices locally are always below the average national prices seen on the news shows.

One thing we have that is less costly than anywhere else. I got gas at the Enrite on Rt 9 in Old Bridge last night, it was $3.07 a gallon. Lowest I have seen in the area. Most in NJ are still like $3.15 a gallon. And I am talking about 87 octane.

NJ has some wilderness to "get lost in" too and drive awhile to destinations. I have been all over the state. Besides that, I don't think I'd want to be anywhere further north than I already am, given the further north you go, the colder it gets. I could see everyone contradicting me now with this heat wave going on, but don't forget the bitter cold winters we often get.

I'd say CT.

Taxes are a killer in NJ.
