(Oklahoma City-AP) -- Oklahoma is weathering the largest budget deficit in its history but spent $184-million of its $5.6-billion budget on vehicles.

That cost includes buying them, leasing them and operating them.

A report from the Central Services Department shows the state owns one vehicle for every 4.1 employees.

Lieutenant Governor Mary Fallin says most state owned vehicles are used for valid purposes, but officials need to start looking at how that money is spent.

The list of state-owned vehicles include cars, sport utility vehicles, trucks, buses, dump trucks, vans and trolleys.
