Teton County apparently is living up to its reputation. The Wyoming Economic Analysis Division revealed last week that this county is still the costliest place to live in the state. Their survey measured six consumer categories, including housing, food and transportation, which the Wyoming Cost of Living Index showed cost 30% more than the state average in Teton County during the fourth quarter of 2012. The second priciest place to live was Sublette County, where it was 10% more costly than the state average. By contrast, the lowest costs of living could be found in Platte, Niobrara and Weston Counties.  Altogether, the report indicated that Wyoming experienced a 2.1% increase in annual inflation from the fourth quarter of 2011 to the fourth quarter of 2012.
