The data on the the number of registered vehicles in the state from 2003 to 2012 shows that we love our cars and trucks.

Thanks to the gang at the state Department of Business, Economic Development and Tourism for the insight as to why local traffic is so awful.

Indeed, there appear to be nearly as many registered vehicles as there are people in the islands. Probably rental cars have something to do with that, no?
