With October being National Energy Awareness Month and the average household spending nearly $2,000 a year on energy bills, the personal-finance website WalletHub conducted an in-depth analysis of 2016’s Most & Least Energy-Efficient States.

To bring awareness to the impact of energy on Americans’ wallets and encourage consumers to conserve more, WalletHub’s analysts compared the efficiency of car- and home-energy consumption in 48 U.S. states. Due to data limitations, Alaska and Hawaii were excluded from our analysis.
