WalletHub, a personal finance website, announced earlier this week that Minnesota is the nation’s fourth most energy efficient state overall.

To understand the financial impact of doing more with less energy, WalletHub compared the auto and home energy efficiency of 48 states -- Alaska and Hawaii were excluded due to data limitations.

Minnesota was found to be second in home energy, 22nd in vehicle fuel and 26th in transportation efficiency with an overall score of fourth in the United States.

Utah came in first and South Carolina was found to be the least efficient state with a score of 48 in home energy and 39 in fuel energy.
