When you own a car, it also means paying for things like gas, insurance, and repairs.

While people in every state have to deal with those costs, Georgia residents have it the worst.

A new report looked at all of the costs car owners have to deal with.

Those numbers showed that Georgia drivers spend more than $4,200 a year to operate a vehicle.

Danielle Jolly of Macon calls her SUV a gas-guzzler.

"I get 11 miles to the gallon. Gas is kicking my butt right now and it has been for a while," she says.

The cost in Georgia is nearly double what people in the cheapest state, Oregon, pay to drive the same car.

The national average to keep a car going is about $3,200.
