Our city, Washington, D.C., gives us many reasons to feel proud. But sometimes we get a bad rap for being expensive– from restaurants and parking to hotels and yes, to real estate purchases. But forget the bad rap, this time D.C. gets a pat on the back for an unexpected reason, according to the personal finance site Wallet Hub. Drum roll please: Washington, D.C. holds the title of Least Energy Expensive State. Okay, D.C. is a city but now we’re splitting hairs.
Take a look at these 3 stats to support our proud status:
- D.C. consumes the least amount of fuel per driver. I’m sure metro riders, cyclists and pedestrians can take some credit here.
- Wyoming ranks three times higher than D.C. in average monthly motor-fuel consumption per driver.
- D.C. ranks fourth-best in electricity consumption per total housing units.
