A recent study named Pennsylvania one of the worst states to drive in. Conducted by WalletHub, a personal finance web site (WalletHub.com), it looked at factors in four categories: the cost of car ownership and maintenance; traffic and infrastructure; safety; and access to vehicles and maintenance. These were broken down into 31 sub-categories that included gas prices, rush-hour traffic congestion, condition of roads, car theft rate, number of rainy days, and changes in traffic fatality rate.
Pennsylvania came in 44th of the 50 states. The only states below us are Rhode Island (45), Delaware (46), Maryland (47), Washington (48), California (49), and Hawaii (50). The five best states are Tennessee (5th), Iowa (4th), North Carolina (3rd), Indiana (2nd), and Texas (number one).
