According to insure.comCost of living refers to the amount of money you need to cover basic living expenses in a certain location. That can include the average cost of:

      • Rent/mortgage payments
      • Utilities
      • Food and groceries
      • Health care
      • Home and auto insurance
      • Transportation
      • Other goods and services

Out of the 277 who responded to "Greater Danbury Speaks Out About Best Advice to Give Someone Moving to Connecticut," 56% stated simply... "DON'T." Some others who responded decided that Democrats ruined the state of Connecticut, and one individual said, "Buy all your guns before you move to Connecticut"
