Tis the season for … road rage? According to a recent study from gas tracker GasBuddy.com, Florida ranked No. 6 in states with the most aggressive holiday drivers, up from its No. 8 rank last year.

The study analyzed data from its app for the Thanksgiving holiday weekend and measured how frequently drivers accelerated quickly, braked hard and speeded.

Drivers, it found, were more likely to make aggressive moves during the beginning of a holiday season, such as when someone is on their way to a holiday event or destination. The calmest times, GasBuddy said, was on the actual day of the holiday.

Georgia ranked No. 1 in the report, followed by California (No. 2) and Texas (No. 3).
