Analysis: Hawaii is the worst state to drive in
HONOLULU, Hawaii (HawaiiNewsNow) - Hawaii is the worst state to drive in.
That’s according to a new analysis by the financial website WalletHub.
Researchers looked at 31 key metrics, including average gas prices to rush-hour traffic congestion to road quality.
According to the results, Hawaii had the highest average gas prices, followed by California and Washington State.
Other areas where Hawaii ranked poorly: It had the highest auto maintenance costs and fewest auto repair shops per capita. It also had the third-highest car theft rate.
Though Vermont had the fewest car washes per capita, Hawaii was right behind that.
Perhaps the most surprising finding: Hawaii was not in the bottom five when it came to highest percentage of rush-hour traffic congestion. California was ranked the worst for traffic.
