Unfortunately, Rhode Island is nearly 20 points above the national average. In all areas, except for median home cost, which is $30K lower than the US average, Rhode Island is more expensive. Housing and utilities make up most of these extra payments, meaning that you might want to save up and be mindful of living here. If you can afford it, Rhode Island can be a fun state. However, other states are on the coastline and cost less than the national average, so you might also want to look at those.
