We want to know, where the worst roads are in Texarkana? 

From what most people tell me, the roads around Arkansas High need a lot of work as well as the College Hill area. I travel down Jefferson often and the end by the high school is in big need of repair. The 50th street area from Jefferson all the way to UPS is beyond bad. It is full of potholes and some area doesn't even look like there is any asphalt left on the road at all.

Did you know that the state of Arkansas finished 44 out of a total of 50 states in terms of the status of their roads? Now hold on that is actually a good statistic. The website stacker has a complete list of all 50 states and the number of complaints they receive from potholes on the roads.

So Arkansas only has one pothole complaint per stretch of 621.3 miles, whereas Texas has 5 pothole complaints every 621.3 miles or 1000 kilometers. Who has the worst roads in the United States? Well, that honor goes to Rhode Island with 23.4 pothole complaints per 1000 kilometers.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
