STATES WITH THE MOST (AND FEWEST) HOUSEHOLD VEHICLES PER 100 PEOPLE

The states with the most vehicles for household/private use (cars for business or government use are not included here) are generally rural states, especially those extending from the Midwest west to the Pacific Northwest. Urban states have the fewest, overall. Alaska is an oddity--partly because cars have little use in some of the most remote areas.
