Louisiana residents enjoy a low cost of living across the state -----" an average 5 percent lower than the rest of the country. Affordable housing costs coupled with some of the nation--------s lowest utility rates make the state a comfortable place to live. Homeowner-friendly tax policies and a stable housing market work together to make owning a home in Central Louisiana an easy and affordable process -----" Alexandria's housing costs are lower than nearby cities such as Beaumont, Little Rock and Houston. In addition, the region's presence in a state with a strong, energy-producing focus provides residents with access to cheaper fuel and utilities. Transportation costs that include everyday expenses such as gasoline and auto repairs are far less in Alexandria than in cities like Jackson, Atlanta, Dallas and Fort Worth. Similar to fuel- and travel-related expenses, utility costs ranging from home energy to basic telephone bills are also much lower in Alexandria.
