We all have assumptions. We think New York is the most expensive place to own and maintain vehicles (gas prices, maintenance costs, etc) but you might be surprised at what other areas actually have a high cost of car ownership.
Hawaii (surprisingly) is the most expensive- from insurance to depreciation. It’s not so sunny over there when you see those numbers, huh?
Not that you can plan your move around a car (that would just be silly), but before moving somewhere, make sure you check out whether it’s a pricey state or not. You’ll be better prepared for surprise costs and figuring it into your cost of living- especially if you’re in the process of new car shopping so you can factor in the type of depreciation the car would get in certain states.
The infographic below shows the more expensive states to own and maintain a car in. Enjoy!
