Hi Linda--Many people go to Alabama because its taxes are less. If you want inexpensive in north Florida, you might be looking at the northern sections of any of the panhandle counties. They are less largely due to not being so close to beach area. If you want closer to beach, but still reasonable prices, the areas around Navarre and Gulf Breeze might be good places to look. Remember that quality of life is important too, so choose not only for price but what things you want to do without going long distances, especially if the gas prices go back up. I hope this helps--if I can be of further assistance, don't hesitate to contact me.
