With U.S. traffic congestion costing the average driver $1,400 per year and the U.S. ranked 13th in the world in road quality, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2018’s Best & Worst States to Drive in.

To determine the most driver-friendly states in the U.S., WalletHub compared the 50 states across 23 key metrics. The dataset ranges from average gas prices to share of rush-hour traffic congestion to road quality.

  • 38th – Share of Rush-Hour Traffic Congestion
  • 40th – Auto-Repair Shops per Capita
  • 32nd – Avg. Gas Prices
  • 28th – Auto-Maintenance Costs
  • 47th – Road Quality
