If the traffic in metro Atlanta isn’t enough to drive you to road rage, it turns out Georgia is the most expensive state to be a driver.
Bankrate.com ranked the states by the total annual average cost of repairs, taxes/fees, gas and insurance. The Peach State had the highest average cost at $4,233, compared with the national average of $3,201. In Georgia, the cost includes $385 for repairs, $1,952 in taxes/fees, $1,129 in gas and $767 in insurance.
“Georgians spend a lot of time in their cars thanks in part to Atlanta’s sprawling communities and a lack of public transportation,” Bankrate.com noted.
