Arkansas and Kansas are the only two states whose last six letters end in KANSAS.

Because they sound different, some lady is confusion.

Consecutive?  I think not.

bassoon1986 said three sets of consecutive double letters, NOT three consecutive sets of double letters.  What Basson1986 said is correct.

Yes, but then doesn't that make "consecutive" and "double" redundant?

Not sure if this one was posted, but:

Maine and Nebraska, the only states that don't use the "winner take all" approach to their electoral votes.

WA-18 east of Auburn

A bit off-topic myself here... but any particular reason why that stretch is three lanes eastbound and only two westbound?

Combination of a truck-climbing lane (main reason), and WSDOT's propensity to end lanes after an exit with a merge, rather than an exit-only lane.

Up until Oregon allowed self serve gas both NJ and OR were the only two states to have full serve gas.

OR's law is so strict it's basically still full serve. If anyone lives within a 500-mile radius of the gas station in question, self serve is still banned.

I thought if I just said double letters Id have all the snarky people on the forum saying things like North Dakota has 2 As, 2 Os, and 2 Ts.

I should've worded that different.

Only states where the two largest cities (Reno and LV) not connected to each other via an interstate

Ever since I moved to Oregon, I've wondered the rationale between not being able to pump your own gas. Sometimes it's really annoying waiting on the attendant to "unhook" me. (First world problems)

My only issue with Oregon has been the number of unused pumps. I'll go to Costco near PDX, and half the pumps are closed and the line enormous as there's not enough attendants.

Interestingly, the second largest city in Alaska keeps changing. In 2000, it was Juneau. In 2010, it was Fairbanks. The 2019 estimate puts it back in Juneau, with Fairbanks losing population since 2010 in absolute numbers. Fairbanks is connected to Anchorage via unsigned Interstate, but Juneau is not.

The 2019 estimate puts it back in Juneau, with Fairbanks losing population since 2010 in absolute numbers. Fairbanks is connected to Anchorage via unsigned Interstate, but Juneau is not.

Juneau's competitiveness with Fairbanks for the #2 spot is only possible because the city and borough of Juneau is one entity.  Fairbanks only counts what's within the city limits; there is a much larger population in the remainder of the North Star Borough, whereas the Juneau "metro" is all within the city limits.  In other words, Fairbanks is a much more populous metropolitan area, Juneau is only #2 because of this "quirk" that they annexed the entire borough within which they are located.  This is much like Jacksonville (Duval Co.) or Virginia Beach (Princess Anne Co.), only there is basically wilderness outside of Juneau.  https://www.google.com/maps/place/Juneau,+AK/@58.4479638,-135.2585425,8.5z/data=!4m5!3m4!1s0x5400de6c6f6a3a8f:0x65ef25aae69f311!8m2!3d58.3019444!4d-134.4197221

But the letter M does not derive from N.

With Delaware, Newark isn't too much smaller than Dover and Newark is within the Wilmington metro area where Dover is not. So I guess with Fairbanks and Anchorage it would exist.
