      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.

Ummm – if you look at the numbers on the chart, they are wrong. Check what they show as the total for Oregon – it doesn’t match the article, but if you add up the numbers it gets there (almost – $1 off) but remember that you can’t pump your own gas in Oregon! you can grow pot, euthanize your grandma, but not pump your own gas! - James from
