Californians are by far the most prolific drivers, but Ohioans ranked fourth in the nation for highway miles driven last year, according to new data by the Department of Transportation.
Buckeye state drivers covered more than 30 billion miles, contributing to the nation's 720 billion total highway miles.
While that number may seem like a stunner, it's by no means a record high. In fact, the Department of Transportation reported that driving per capita has plateaued in recent years, due in part to a shift away from cars by Millenials.
Here are the top ten states for miles driven:
*Note- per usual, Ohio beat Michigan.
California- 84.681 billion
Texas- 55.734 billion
Florida- 34.689 billion
Ohio- 31.389 billion
Illinois- 31.033 billion
Georgia- 28.467 billion
Virginia- 24.062 billion
Pennsylvania- 23.662 billion
North Carolina- 21.241 billion
Michigan- 20.707 billion
