(KGTV) - Traffic. High gas prices. Potholes. The high number of obstacles between California drivers and a smooth commute made our state the fourth worst in the nation for driving concerns in a WalletHub study.
Experts ranked states for rush-hour congestion, car theft rates, average cost of gas, auto maintenance costs, and road quality.
California was number 47 overall, with Maryland, Washington and Hawaii ranking at the bottom of the list. The top state was Texas.
