If you own a car in the state of Georgia, you probably already know it costs big bucks. But did you know that the Peach state is the most expensive place in the U.S. to own a car?
A new report from personal finance website Bankrate-dot-com says Georgians that own a vehicle spend more than 42 hundred dollars a year.
That's one thousand dollars more than the national average.
The study factors in the cost of gas, insurance, and repairs along with taxes and fees. One fee the Georgia legislature is phasing out. A yearly fee on vehicles called an "ad valorem".
Oregon is the cheapest state in the nation to own a vehicle at just over 21 hundred dollars.
