WTVO/WQRF - For once, Illinois is on a financial list for a good reason.
Illinois is among the cheapest places in the nation to own a car, according to Bankrate. Drivers on average spend under $2,000 per year on gasoline. The Midwest in general scored well on the list.
The most expensive place to own a car is Wyoming. Drivers there spend about $2,700/yr. Bankrate says drivers there log more miles and as a result have to buy more gas.
Louisiana and Florida round out the top three.
