According to Bankrate.com's cost of living calculator, Jacksonville Florida is ~ 20% cheaper than New Haven CT.
If you move outside the city (to Yulee for instance) then it gets a bit cheaper in general. Traffic was pretty decent when I lived north of Jax (moved up here 8 years ago). Any specific questions you have about the area?
