New Mexico drivers should be celebrating: A recent study says we've got it easy on our roadways.
A survey done by Wallet Hub took into consideration everything from average gas prices, number of days with precipitation, and the amount of rush hour traffic.
Most people in Albuquerque can agree, rush hour traffic in New Mexico's biggest city is nothing compared to other metro areas.
According to a survey done by Wallet Hub, New Mexico has one of the easiest rush hour commutes in the country.
With the second lowest percentage for traffic congestion, the only state ranking above New Mexico in that category was Mississippi.
That's not all the study considered: Wallet Hub also looked at factors like the number of days with precipitation, and it looks like our desert climate is on the list of items making our commute easier.
In that category, New Mexico was ranked in the top five, coming in behind California, Arizona, and Nevada with Texas in fifth place.
