When it comes to energy efficiency, Georgia doesn’t rank all too well.

Financial analysis website WalletHub recently examined energy efficiency across the united state, measuring the efficiency of auto- and home-energy consumption in 48 U.S. states.

Georgia came in at No. 35.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, the average U.S. family spends at least $2,000 per year on utilities, with heating and cooling of spaces alone accounting for more than half the bill. In 2018, the average consumer spent another $1,968 on motor fuel and oil, up $59 from last year.
