Our methodology: We used the most current average car insurance premiums by state from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners, and typical car repair costs from CarMD. Per capita annual fuel spending by state comes from the U.S. Energy Information Administration, and fees and taxes were found using the Edmunds' vehicle Cost to Own tool. For states where fees and taxes are based on the vehicle, we assumed that the car was a popular 2018 Toyota Camry model that had been purchased new in 2018.
