In Rhode Island I probably see New Hampshire and New York the most for non border states. I see Maine a good amount too. Then again states up here are all close together.

In Virginia it is definitely New Jersey. Second to that would probably be South Carolina.

A lot of solar farms and wind farms have been popping up all over america. Most companies that contract those jobs come from Texas.

Definately not - it is Maryland - probably because they don't have car tax there.

Obviously MD and NC have the most. This thread is about non border states.

Here in Michigan I have noticed quite an influx of New York plates in recent years, even in the smaller towns. I'm not sure what's up with that.

Also lots and lots of Florida plates, but then I know that the vast majority of them belong to snowbirds who are from here originally and live here for half of the year.

Living within half an hour of Ann Arbor I am sometimes amazed at how far people drive to bring their kids to school at the University of Michigan, because I have seen plates on campus from as far away as California and even Alaska.

Living in a peninsular state, outside of Ann Arbor you don't see a large variety, since no one needs to drive through here to get anywhere but here or Canada. It's not like Ohio, for example, that has the Ohio Turnpike that carries scores of east/west travelers from many different states passing through on their way across the country.
