Ranked: Expensive States Where Americans Don’t Want To Live

8. Connecticut

Connecticut state

Connecticut looks pretty cool but has a high cost of living, just like its New England neighbor. Residents pay more on housing and food in the state, more than states in the country. Also, residents pay more on tax. Only property taxes are pegged at 2%. Other taxes could go up to 7%. All these costs put together maybe too much for an average American.
