In the second quarter of 2012, the relative cost of transportation in Virginia was among the country’s lowest. Low gas prices are likely one reason for this. Virginia is also one of the wealthiest states in the country, with a median household income of $61,882 as of last year. Currently, Virginia charges 20.1 cents per gallon in total taxes and fees — more than 10 cents per gallon below the national average and inline with other states where gas is inexpensive.
