The WalletHub team also plucked some interesting tidbits from the data that helps explain exactly where certain states excel and others fail. For instance, the states with the lowest percentage of rush hour congestion are Mississippi, New Mexico, Iowa, Pennsylvania, and Kansas, while Delaware has the highest, followed by Rhode Island, New Jersey, Maryland, and California. And when it comes to average maintenance costs, Oregon, West Virginia, Georgia, Indiana, and Arkansas have the lowest, while Maine, Vermont, Massachusetts, Hawaii, and New York have the highest. If you want to see more of the revealing figures they found, you can scope out their full report here.
And while rankings can't do much to clear up the bumper to bumper traffic in front of you, next time you're stuck just remember things could probably be worse (sorry, Hawaii).
