    CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa - It costs about about $3,000 a year to operate a car in Iowa. That's according to a new report from personal finance website

    Georgia is the nation's costliest state to own a car. Drivers there spend just over 42-hundred-dollars a year to operate a car. That's double what the folks in the cheapest state, Oregon, pay to drive the same vehicle.

    The study factored in the cost of gasoline, insurance, repairs, taxes and fees across the country.

    The national average stands at about $3,200.
