A study by the insurance website QuoteWizard.com ranks Wyoming fourth in the nation for alcohol consumption.

You can read the results of the survey here.

The survey ranked Vermont, Wisconsin, and Nevada as the three states ahead of Wyoming for per capita alcohol consumption. West Virginia was ranked 50th and New York was 49th.

Wyoming's neighbor Utah was 48th. It's worth noting that a large percentage of Utah's population are members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints, commonly known as the Mormons. That church strongly discourages its members from drinking alcohol.

The study found that Wyoming residents consume an average of three gallons of ethanol (alcohol) per year. That compares with a national average of 2.51 gallons.

The study found that 6.7 percent of the Cowboy State's population is considered heavy drinkers, a percentage point above the national average of 5.7 percent.

One troubling statistic was that Wyoming ranked third in the country for per capita DUI arrests.

That was actually higher than the three states with higher overall alcohol consumption than Wyoming and was behind only North and South Dakota, which were ranked 1 and 2 respectively.

Among Wyoming's neighbors other than the Utah ranking discussed above, Montana was sixth in alcohol consumption, North Dakota was seventh, Colorado was ninth and South Dakota was 16th.
