The 10 Most Expensive States in Which to Live in America


What are the 10 most expensive states to live in?  A recent study by CNBC looked at the out-of-control living expenses in many of these states that make it difficult for residents to enjoy the best possible quality of life.  They looked at several key metrics (including cost of living, home prices, food prices, energy, etc) and then ranked all 50 states.  No surprises here….however each states’ individual breakdown is pretty interesting.

Here are CNBC’s 10 most expensive states in which to live:

  1. Hawaii
  2. California
  3. Massachusetts
  4. New York
  5. Alaska
  6. Oregon
  7. Maryland
  8. Connecticut
