You know when you're planning an awesome rager, so you go to the liquor store to pick up like six cases of Bartles & Jaymes and put it on your debit card? Then you remember maybe you don't have enough money in your account to pay for all that Bartles & Jaymes, but it's cool, you have a check you can deposit first thing in the morning, but then you're hung over from all that Bartles & Jayes and forget to, and then get hit with an overdraft fee. Yeah, happens to the best of us all the time.

The average charged in Miami is $30.26, while in San Francisco you'd only be charged $22.39. Ouch.
Things aren't likely to get better anytime soon either, as banks tighten their purses they increasingly rely on overdraft fees as a large source of profit.
