Detroit was the most expensive at an average cost of $1,307.75.


“From fuel rates to insurance to taxes, an assortment of variables impact how much it costs to maintain a vehicle — and each is dependent on the driver’s city and state,” Runzheimer explained in a release. “An organization that fails to account for these local factors could be drastically over- or undercompensating their road warrior employees.”
