As we've already discussed, California's had it rough. San Jose is no different than other California cities, and it has seen the number of home sales fall more than 24 percent year-over-year. Median home sale prices have fallen since last year, too, though not as drastically as home sales. Prices fell 2.4 percent to $371,000. (CBS News)

(MoneyWatch) Despite improved unemployment numbers, times are still tough for most Main Street Americans. Gas prices are high, making travel, groceries and nearly everything else more expensive.

Depending on where you live, you may pay even more than most people. Consumers generally pay more for everything in a big city than they do in a small town.

According to ACCRA's latest Cost of Living Index (COLI), these urban areas are the most expensive in the nation based on cost of housing, utilities, grocery items, health care and miscellaneous goods and services.
