Cost of Living

According to Sperling’s Best Places, the cost of living in the heart of our three-county area (Hopkinsville) is a whopping 13.7% less than the U.S. average. People here save money on everything from groceries to healthcare and housing. They even save on the way to work. Average commute times are eight minutes less than the national average.

 

According to the website areavibes.com, which measures costs and “livability” scores for every U.S. city, the cost of living in South Western Kentucky is well below the national average for all major indices.
