Is the cost of living in Saudi Arabia high?

We asked people how much they someone comfortably live on in Saudi Arabia, they wrote:

"The cost of living in Saudi Arabia is generally moderate, though some items can be expensive. In terms of housing, expats tend to pay high rental prices for westernized homes. On the other hand, the cost for basic food items and groceries can be reasonable. In addition, petrol is relatively inexpensive, transportation is available and relatively affordable, and healthcare is accessible and of a high quality. Overall, the cost of living can vary from low to moderate, depending on individual spending habits," remarked one expat in Saudi Arabia.
