As someone who sits in traffic for just under two hours a day, this really hits home.

Washington was named the second worst state to drive in according to a study done by Wallethub.com.

To determine the most driver-friendly states in the U.S., they compared all 50 states across 23 key metrics. Factors included average gas prices, share of rush-hour traffic congestion, road quality and more.

Here's how Washington stacked up (1 = Best, 25 = Average):

  • 31st – Share of Rush-Hour Traffic Congestion
  • 47th – Car Theft Rate
  • 20th – Auto-Repair Shops per Capita
  • 47th – Avg. Gas Prices
  • 41st – Auto-Maintenance Costs
  • 42nd – Road Quality
  • 22nd – Car Dealerships per Capita
