Wyoming Spends More Money On Gas Than Every State Except Maine
The average person in Wyoming spends $1,329 on gas every year, according to a new study ranking the most expensive states for drivers. Only Maine had a higher average annual expenditure for gas, with North Dakota, South Dakota, and Montana rounding out the top five.
The primary reason why Wyoming pays more at the pump is because we drive more miles. Gas prices in the Cowboy State were significantly below the national average, ranking 33rd in the study.
Hawaii had the highest average gas price in the study, followed by Alaska, California, Oregon, and Washington. Texas and Alabama tied for the lowest average price per gallon.
Residents in the District of Columbia spend the least on gas, according to the study with New York, Rhode Island, Pennsylvania, and Illinois close behind
