Oregon sounds perfect.......if you are living in your car!
They more than make up for the lowest "car" costs with other taxes, especially property taxes.
How is the national average of highway miles driven 10,110 in #2 least expensive but in #3 most expensive it says the national average of vehicle miles traveled per person 9,590?
In 1972 that may have been the case, but today Oregon has many transplants from all over. Oregonians welcomed me in 2005 and many of my acquaintances & friends are from other states!
A beautiful state, with very nice folks and very reasonable auto expenses!
Oregon may be the least expensive but it has the worst drivers I have EVER experienced!!! Tail gating...and I mean so close you can't see their license plate behind you...and it seems to be especially fun at 75 MPH on the freeway....the state hobby!
Also, what do they mean that geographical location has little impact on vehicle depreciation? Southern cars last longer because there is not the salt and sand on the roads to rot them out underneath! Many times in Maine, a brand-new car will only last about four or five seasons and then they are too rusted out to pass inspection!
