According to a recent study, New York is ranked as the best in the country when it comes to this.

The analysts at Wallethub, compared the states in order to determine the Most & Least Energy Efficient States.

Average U.S. families spend at least $2,000 on utilities per year, with heating and cooling of spaces eating up half of that bill. In 2018, the average consumer spent nearly $2,000 of motor fuel and oil.

Adopting energy-efficient measures in the home could reduce a family's utility cost by 25 percent. A more fuel-efficient vehicle could save a person over $700 a year.

WalletHub compared the auto- and home-energy efficiency in 48 U.S. states. Due to data limitations, Alaska and Hawaii were excluded from their analysis.

Here's the breakdown for New York.
