Transportation is usually one of the bigger budget items for every household.
Which state you live in will play a big part in how much you are paying to get around, according to a study by Bankrate.
The worst states for drivers are places that are expensive and have long commutes, said Sarah Foster, an analyst for Bankrate. The rankings were based on four categories: cost, driving quality, safety and weather conditions.
California ranked as the harshest state for motorists thanks largely to its having the highest gas prices and the most expensive car repairs, Foster said.
