Despite the Heat Washington Enjoys Lowest Energy Costs – Dave’s Diary

The weatherman says to expect 103 today, 104 tomorrow and upper 90’s after that so it’s nice to know we can at least afford to run the air conditioner.Summer has the highest energy consumption of the year and WalletHub compared the 50 U.S. states and the District of Columbia based on their energy-efficiency.  Energy costs eat up about 7.1% of the average consumer’s total income so it’s a worthwhile exercise.

 

David McNew/Newsmakers

Using six key metrics to explore a number of different factors, among them the price and consumption of electricity as well as the price of fuel at the pump and number of miles driven the results show Washington State is the best place to be.
