Washington One of the Worst State to Drive In

Everyone can agree that the worst part of the day is often the commute to and from work. Whether you work on the other side of town or five towns over it can be a stressful ordeal. Wallethub.com put together a study to determine the best and worst states to drive in. The study took into account the ‘Cost of Vehicle Ownership and Maintenance,’ ‘Traffic and Infrastructure Rank,’ ‘Safety ‘ and ‘Access to Vehicles & Maintenance.’

The top 5 are:

  1. Oregon
  2. Illinois
  3. Indiana
  4. Iowa
  5. Texas

The bottom 5 are:

46. New Hampshire

47. California

48. Washington

49. Alaska

50. Hawaii

I would bet that the Seattle traffic certainly is what makes Washington so low on this list. Here in the Yakima Valley things seem to move pretty smoothly. My commute is also the easiest I’ve EVER had in my life- just seven minutes door to door.
