States that showed a decrease of greater than 40 percent received an A grade. Nevada had a 51 percent decrease in average distance traveled.

Clark County received an A, along with Carson City and Douglas counties. Eureka County was the state’s lowest-ranked county, receiving an F after showing a 73 percent increase in distance traveled.

Nationwide, Nevada ranked behind only the District of Columbia (60 percent decrease) and Alaska (52 percent decrease). Wyoming was the lone state to receive an F.
