Before this story I was thinking Wichita Falls ranked somewhere in the middle when it comes to our bills per month. We're literally in the middle for this survey.

A website called Doxo just dropped it's ranking for the average bill prices throughout the country and I decided to see where Wichita Falls ranked in the state of Texas. Out of the 70 areas ranked, Wichita Falls is dead center at 35 out of 70. The average Wichita Falls citizen will pay $1,571 per month in bills. The national average is $1,889, so nice to see Wichita Falls below that.

A bunch of the smaller areas in Texas did have smaller bills per month, which is not surprising. Nacogdoches and El Paso ranking below Wichita Falls was a little surprising to me, I thought they would be more expensive places to live than our city. If you want a full breakdown of the numbers, you can check it out here. Below you will see some of the bill prices that your average Wichita Falls citizen is paying. Hopefully you're not paying something ridiculously more high than these average prices.

Many of the included towns jump out at the casual observer as popular summer-rental spots--the Ozarks' Branson, Missouri, or Arizona's Lake Havasu--it might surprise you to dive deeper into some quality-of-life offerings beyond the beach and vacation homes. You'll likely pick up some knowledge from a wide range of Americana: one of the last remaining 1950s-style drive-ins in the Midwest; a Florida town that started as a Civil War veteran retirement area; an island boasting some of the country's top public schools and wealth-earners right in the middle of a lake between Seattle and Bellevue; and even a California town containing much more than Johnny Cash's prison blues.
