This article suggests moving from a more populated more expensive area into a small town where the cost of living is much less. So would moving to West Virginia be the best thing for everyone to do, since the cost of living is much less there than most other places in the United States. I say no, sure it is good for some people to move from the big city into a small town, because they are starting a family and need the extra space or are changing jobs and won't have as much income. If everyone follows this trend though the cost of living in these areas will eventually go up and everyone will be stuck in the same situation and this moving in and out of low cost of living areas will become cyclical. A few factors deterring people from this are you are farther away from shopping malls, major cities, and entertainment options. Do these three factors effect everyone the same or will they eventually become disgarded because benefits from a lower gas price and cost of living outweigh the entertainment benefits?
