Carnation

Jishai Evers of Dadaviz created the map above to show the ratio of people to automobiles in each of the 50 states, based on 2007 figures from the U.S. Department of Energy. In that year, six states had as many or more cars than people – Nebraska, Alabama, Iowa, North Dakota, Montana and Wyoming, which tops the list with 1,140 vehicles for every 1,000 people in the state.
Odd that Colorado would have the lowest ratio of cars to people when it is right there in the Rocky Mountains, next to Wyoming, which looks like it has the highest ratio. And what's up with Alabama and Mississippi? I thought they were practically the same place, but they have very different ratios. Could it be that the car-crazed birds of a feather flock together?

The graphic says "Vehicles", the text says "Automobiles".
What about motorcycles. What about Amish buggies? ;-)
