48. Wyoming

> Value of land per acre: $1,558

> Total value: $97 billion (4th lowest)

> Total acres: 62.3 million (8th largest)

An average acre in Wyoming was worth just $1,600, less than any other continental state. Like most low-value states, Wyoming is one of the largest states in the country. But Wyoming’s 62.3 million acres were worth a total of $97 billion, less than all but a handful of other states. More than half of Wyoming was federally owned, and government property accounted for the majority of Wyoming’s overall value — the only state where this was the case.
