Who would of thought the citizens of Vermont, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, Alaska, and Montana spent the most, out of all the states. Especially the NY/CT area.

In Ny/CT you can go to the store and buy your things which is a lot easier. I've been to Wyoming twice and it's literally in the middle of nowhere hard to find stores and stuff. It doesn't surprise me that they accounted for most of the online sales because some of those states are pretty barren.

"Other top states, such as Wyoming, are predominantly rural, so online shopping is the only method of accessing door-busting deals."
