Who has it worse than California motorists? No one, according to a new study released by Bankrate.com.
The New York-based consumer financial services company evaluated such factors as commute time, annual insurance premiums, gas expenses, cost of car repairs, car thefts and auto fatalities.
For each state, Bankrate assigned a score of zero to 10 on each of the criteria, then added them up to create an overall score, with 60 the maximum. California’s score was 21; Iowa’s was 48.
