How many cars are in Oregon?

I’ve lived in Oregon my entire life. In the past decade or so, I’ve noticed that the population is growing quickly. We like to keep our state green, so I’m worried about an influx of cars and pollution in Oregon. Out of curiosity, how many cars are there in Oregon?

Oregon is one of the fastest-growing states in America. So you’re right, the number of cars is also increasing.
The U.S. Census Bureau reported that there were 4.1 million cars in Oregon in 2020. From 2015 to 2020, the number of registered cars increased by 13.5%, which is the fourth-largest increase of any state in the U.S.
The good news is electric vehicles (EVs) are gaining in popularity. If gas prices stay up and states continue to incentivize the purchase of EVs, car-related pollution should go down! Let’s keep our fingers crossed (and save up for a Nissan Leaf).
