Surprisingly, NYC is not the city with the highest average fee. That undesirable honor goes to Atlanta, clocking in at a hefty $5.15, while New York trails closely at $5.03. Phoenix and Miami are also at the higher end of the spectrum, coming in at $4.88 and and $4.78, respectively.
Inexplicably, San Francisco -- known as one of the expensive cities in the world -- forces you to drop a mere $3.85 per transaction. Cincinnati is the second-cheapest, at $3.86, with Kansas City ($4.01) and Dallas ($4.11) rounding out the lucky cities with (semi) reasonable fees.
Luckily for me, I keep all my money hidden inside a box of Boggle in my childhood bedroom. I suggest you all do the same.
