How We Determined The Most Expensive Cities In Oklahoma

There are basic necessities that you have to buy no matter where in the country you live. Those things include:

  • Housing
  • Food
  • Gas
  • Health Insurance
  • Utilities
  • Transportation

You can then compare the cost of these things in each of the places in Oklahoma to figure out which is the most expensive.

For reference, the United State averages a cost of living 100. A score below 100 means that the city has a below average cost of living while a score over 100 has a high cost of living for that category.

So we used that cost of living index in order to rank all of the 74 places in Oklahoma that have more than 5,000 people.

The city with the highest cost of living index, Edmond, rank as being the most expensive.
