Review of Bakersfield, California

Where to begin
Star Rating - 12/18/2016
Bakersfield has the dirtiest air in the state or US i cant remember. My car is covered with a black soot all the time, have to wash it a lot. Allergies are bad here to, the air, the not so many trees, in a valley, so maybe. Cheaper housing but you get cheap, I mean cheap not so nice housing for your money. The summer is so hot, 110F. Cost is for me is $300 a month and thats with a CARE discount, what a rip off. This is for 4 months or more. CA is to expensive, gas prices at 2.50, dmv for a newer car 200, insurance for car 1000 a year, house tax a year 1200 for a older home, food is high, eating out is 7-10 for lunch more for dinner. I have to move to get away from these costs. Plus Bakersfield has nothing of its own to do you have to drive at least 1 hour out and more to other places in CA traffic, forget it.
