The Drunkest City in Texas. And America.

Did you see this slideshow of the drunkest cities in each state?

El Paso is the drunkest city in Texas.

Okay, that’s mildly surprising, perhaps. But what’s really stunning is the percentage of adults who binge or “heavy drink.”

El Paso clocks in at a hefty 56.2 percent. Our closest competitor is Dubuque, Iowa at 30.8. Most of the other cities are within a couple standard deviations of 20 percent.

More people would probably be moving out of El Paso if they could find their cars.
