Best States for Driving Puts Wyoming at Middle of the Pack
Wyoming did well in some areas of this study, but struggled in others.
Who doesn't love a good road trip? Road trips are a part of life. They get us to our loved ones, big events or even just away from the noise of life for a bit. For me, it also means that I'm going to indulge in some not-so-resolution-friendly food (burgers and fries are my jam).
However road trips are the only time that we hit the road.
Many of us drive every single day for work, kids soccer, get-togethers with friends, etc. I'd say a pretty decent chunk of our life is spent behind the wheel of a car. Unfortunately, we don't live in the best place to drive in.
After looking at various contributing factors to driving like gas prices, road quality, rush-hour traffic, and more, WalletHub compiled a list of the "Best and Worst States to Drive In." Wyoming has found itself at the middle of the pack, coming in at number 31. Don't worry though, Colorado is keeping us company at number 32.
Wyoming struggled the most in the area of vehicle repairs. WalletHub calls this the "Access to Vehicles & Maintenance" rank. Wyoming has the fewest auto-repair shops per capita. The only states with fewer shops are North Dakota, Delaware, Hawaii, and Alaska.
