California Ranks Poorly On “Best States To Drive In” List

Our data set ranges from average gas prices to share of rush-hour traffic congestion to road quality.

I have lived all over the continental United States, and I can tell you that bad drivers are everywhere. But, traffic seems to have it’s own personality depending on where you are in the country.

WalletHub just released their list of the best and worst states to drive in, and California did not do so well. In fact…we came in 47th! 

WalletHub compared all 50 states across 30 key indicators of a positive commute. Our data set ranges from average gas prices to share of rush-hour traffic congestion to road quality. Read on for the results, additional commentary from a panel of experts, and a full description of our methodology.

California definitely isn’t the worst state I have lived in when it comes to drivers, but it’s definitely the most expensive state I have ever driven in…hands down. That factors into the survey as well.

Do better California, do better.
