Major Import Export

imports by US stateThe following two maps show the most valuable import and export in each state in America by dollar value. The maps were prepared by cost estimating website Fixr.com using 2014 data from the US Census Bureau.

Fuel, especially crude oil, is still a major import for many US states. Not coincidentally, machinery and transportation is the second most highly imported commodity. Other pockets of the country have a greater need for electronics while Wisconsin, somewhat comically, spends a large amount of money on sweaters.

Machinery, particularly aircrafts, are a major export of the United States. Several states specialize in refining fuels, such as New Jersey, Texas, Pennsylvania, and West Virgina.

Major exports of other states are representative of the state as a whole. For example, Maine's biggest export is lobsters, Nevada's is gold, Michigan's is trucks, and Iowa exports lots of corn.
