Cost of Living Index

I present a plotting of the cost of living index across the United States. The graph plots states and selected cities horizontally according to longitude and vertically by the index with size variations based on population density and color by per capita income. I decided to curve the horizon, finding it interesting that in doing so, the baseline across the country graphs straight, as the center of the country has a lower average cost of living (Oklahoma having the lowest per state and Harlingen, Texas being the lowest town) than the coasts (peaking at Manhattan, unsurprisingly).
