GOBankingRates Logo By Karen Doyle of GOBankingRates | Slide 2 of 52: 
Total sales tax paid: $3,500.09
Yearly car registration fee: $57
Annual car insurance premium: $1,518
Annual gas expenses: $2,984.07 ($4.10 per gallon)
Annual car maintenance and repair costs: $385.42

California drivers pay the most to operate their vehicles and the reason boils down to two things: gas and taxes. Gas in California averages $4.10 per gallon – by far the highest of any state. In fact, it’s 46 cents per gallon more than the next priciest state. And the state and local sales tax rates add up to 9.5% in Los Angeles, the third-highest of any state.
