Georgians Need Big Checkbooks to Own Their Cars

Offbeat

The state famous for peaches is gaining notoriety of a different kind.

Georgia may have been on Ray Charles mind back in the day,but most Georgians today are more likely to have their wallets on theirmind. According to a recently publishedstudy at Bankrate, Georgia is the most expensive state in the US to own acar in. NBC News reports it's down to a combination ofthe distance owners have to drive, poor public transport options, as well as the high costs for repairs, gas, insurance, and the highestcost in the country for taxes and fees.

So high, in fact, it's almost ten times the amount a car owner would pay in taxes and fees in the most affordable state, Oregon. Don’t just think this only affects Joe the plumber, the high taxesand fees also affect the celebs that live or spend a great deal of time and buy their supercars in Georgia. We put some photos together of said celebswho have likely paid a small fortune to Uncle Sam for the privilege ofownership. We hope for their sake, they didn't buy their supercars in the Peach State, where apparently only peaches are still cheap.
