Turns out Oregon, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa and Texas are the best states for driving.

Illinois, for example, ranks high because it has some of the most auto-repair shops and car washes per capita.

Montana, though, has some of the most well-maintained roads and in Rhode Island, you’ll drive on the safest roads, according to WalletHub.

Missouri has the lowest average regular gas price, $1.83 per gallon, which is 1.8 times lower than in Hawaii, the state with the highest at $3.34 per gallon.

Mississippi has the lowest share of rush-hour traffic congestion, 17 percent, which is five times lower than in California, the state with the highest at 85 percent.

Vermont has the fewest car thefts (per 1,000 residents), 0.31, which is 18.6 times fewer than in Alaska, the state with the most at 5.76.
