does it cost more to have a snapshot on multiple regions

Is there anyway to remove from one region if it is on multiple regions and it does cost?

Snapshots are billed according to the amount of disk space they consume at a rate of $0.05/GB. So if your Snapshot is 2GB and you have it in 2 regions, you’d be using 4GB which would cost $0.20.

As far as removing it from a specific region, from what I can see, this is not possible (at the time of this reply).

According to the following guide:—-adding-the-snapshot-to-new-region-(optional)

If you are interested in migrating your data between DigitalOcean datacenters, you can do so easily by transferring a snapshot of the Droplet between regions from the images page in the DigitalOcean control panel.
