Despite campaign attempts to encourage Oklahoma residents to carpool, a new survey shows that most still prefer driving alone to work.

Alabama, Tennessee and South Carolina ranked among the least carpool-friendly states, while Hawaii and Alaska led the nation in carpooling, according to the survey's interactive map.
