Gas in Tampa is cheap because of the port. It's higher (sometimes dramatically) in more isolated cities like Tallahassee.

Having lived in many places all over the US in my 45 years of life (Seattle, Portland, Minneappolis, South Padre Island in deep south Texas, small towns in Arkansas & Alabama, Virginia Beach, etc), I can say that of all the places I've lived or visited, I am beyond excited to be moving to the Tampa Bay area! We've vacationed there and love so much about the area that we decided we had to live out the dream of living there.

Some great things we love about the area that haven't been mentioned:
The Morean Arts Center (in St. Pete)
Pier 60 evenings
Fresh Seafood
The laidback lifestyle
No state income tax
Sunshine Drag Strip (we love drag racing!)
Proximity to Disney/Epcot, NHRA racing in Gainsville, and pro sports events
Sand that doesn't get HOT
Rush hour traffic that actually moves
Cafe's, coffee shops and diners that make open air eating/drinking a joy!
Generally nice people (especially when you've lived as many places as I have, you KNOW this to be true.)

Exclamation Kayaking Almost Year-Round!

I love that the weather makes it possible to go kayaking year round, or almost year round! Lots of beautiful places to paddle or drift around and see wildlife you probably wouldn't see any other way.

All the pro sports in the area (PGA, MLB, NHL, NFL, and sometimes NBA preseason).
