Good evening,

As someone who lives in the Golden State, pricing for various items can be more expensive while other things are less than what is found in the rest of the country.

For example, real estate pricing is quite expensive as places such as San Francisco and Los Angeles offer some of the highest pricing to live anyplace in the country. Same would do with taxes as higher for the cost of living. Prop 13 though has helped in keeping property tax level.

Other things like produce in the supermarket is less as many items that we buy are grown in the state which allows for lower pricing than other parts of the country.

So while living in the state can cost more for things, business has been doing well and growing in places such as Silicon Valley and parts of San Francisco and Los Angeles.
