How many cars are registered in Arizona?
Does Arizona have more cars than Oklahoma? I came to Arizona for college and I feel like I’ve seen way more cars here than I did back home. I’m not sure if that’s just because I’m in a big city or if there are actually more cars.
Answer provided by
There are 2,410,018 cars in Arizona as of the 2020 census. Oklahoma only has 1,223,848 registered cars, so Arizona has almost twice as many vehicles as Oklahoma does.
This is largely due to population. Arizona has almost 7.2 million people in the state, whereas Oklahoma’s population is under 4 million.
It may also be that living in a big city just means encountering a higher number of vehicles, and you aren’t used to it yet. Think about it this way—you’re driving among residents, commuters, and visitors. And over 32 million tourists visited AZ in 2020 (although many surely used alternate transportation).
Lastly, Phoenix is known for having terrible traffic. Traffic jams are usually contained to specific areas, though, so you may be able to avoid these routes with careful planning.
