Longview is the fourth least expensive place to live in America. That's according to a new survey by ACCRA, a non profit research organization.
ACCRA based their findings on six categories; groceries, housing, utilities, transportation, health care, and goods and services. In the first three categories, Longview had it's biggest gains. Grocery items were 87% of the national average. Housing came in at 76.4% and utilities finished up at just 77.1% of the rest of the country.
Longview Economic Development Corproation Director John Stroud says this survey can help him attract more jobs and businesses to the area. "Large companies that use a lot of electricity, they can save a lot of money by operating here versus some of these other areas with high costs."
