It’s no secret that things have gotten more expensive lately. Most of the focus has gone to the price of gas, but Washington State has also seen an increase in the cost of household bills. Even the Tri-Cities has felt the impact.
Washington State is the 8th highest in the nation for the cost of household bills. The Evergreen State as a whole is almost 21% higher than the national average with 37% of the annual household income (State median income is just under $81,000) going to household bills.
