Most efficient consumers of energy – by state

If I’m reading this correctly…

What is going on in AK, WY, LA and ND??

I think it must have to do with industry energy use in those states, but not 100% sure..

    lowest population densities? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_U.S._states_by_population_density
    except LA, dont know whats going on with that. WY and AK have lots o’ oil to harvest, so maybe thats upping their #s.

    If it was purely energy used by people that lived there then population density wouldn’t be directly responsible. I’m leaning towards the energy use by industry is being included and when you divide that by the few people that they have in those states, it seems like alot.. I dunno though..

    huh, less people live in all of wyoming than in DC

    guess that is fewer people who will die immediately when that super-volcano under yellowstone finally blows. now *that* (supervolcano) is the kind of energy we need to harvest!

    Here is another article making erroneous conclusions about this data and attributing it to their energy efficiency:
