ATLANTA (AP) - A consumer financial services company has found that ATM fees in metropolitan Atlanta are among the highest in the county.

WSB-TV reports that Bankrate’s recent report found the Atlanta area’s average out-of-network ATM fee of $5.05 was the fifth-highest of the 25 markets examined.

Bankrate spokesman Greg McBride says ATM fees have risen nationally and hit a record high for the 11th consecutive year.

Bankrate says banks often waive their fee for using an out-of-network ATM but many times that’s not the situation in Atlanta.

Many grocery stores and pharmacies often offer a cash-back option at the register without fees.
