OKLAHOMA CITY – When it comes to the holidays, money can be a little tight.

However, experts at Movoto Real Estate say Oklahomans have it far better than others across the country.

Recently, the organization analyzed adjusted income, cost of food, cost of utilities, cost of living, median home prices and the unemployment rate to figure out the most and least expensive places to live.

Oklahoma was ranked second on the list for being one of the most affordable states.

“Oklahoma offered locals low costs of food, utilities, and the lowest miscellaneous costs of living in the nation. It also had quite a selection of affordable housing and low unemployment, with the slightly lower median income being the only reason it didn’t make No. 1,” the site said.

Iowa was the only state to beat the Sooner State on the list.

However, most of the affordable areas were located in the Midwest.

The top 10 most affordable states is as follows:

  1. Iowa
  2. Oklahoma
  3. Kansas
  4. Nebraska
  5. Texas
  6. Indiana
  7. West Virginia
  8. Arkansas
  9. Kentucky
  10. Louisiana

The least affordable states include Alaska, Connecticut, Massachusetts, New York, Hawaii, Rhode Island and California.
