Government vehicles cost taxpayers $3.4B

Operating those vehicles ? maintenance, leases and fuel -- cost taxpayers a whopping $3.4 billion last year, according to General Services Administration data obtained and analyzed by the Associated Press. While Cabinet and other officials say they need the vehicles to do their jobs, watchdogs say mismanagement of the fleet is costing millions of dollars a year in wasteful spending.
