I sincerely question this list... I understand Cost of Living, etc.... but I find it hard to say that Jacksonville, NC is most expensive in NC. Almost as much as VA Beach is in Virginia, when factoring in Fairfax County, Loudon, Prince William, etc.

Clearly, this isn't most expensive city/municipality, but most expensive metro area. Wilmington should be the most expensive city to live in in Delaware, because it is, but it's listed as part of the most expensive city in Pennsylvania. Since we only have three counties in Delaware, and one county is in another city's metro area (unjustly, in my opinion), you have just two cities to choose from: "Dover" (Dover MSA, i.e. Kent County), and "Seaford" (Seaford MiSA, i.e. Sussex County). Some analysis!
