SALT LAKE CITY — With excitement peaking for the next “Star Wars” movie, The Washington Post took a look at Google Trends to figure out which state has the most people who are nuts for the sci-fi franchise.

According to the Washington Post, Utahns were by far the most likely people to be Googling Star Wars-related topics between December 10 and December 17. The next closest competitor was California, but, even still: People in the Beehive State were 25 percent more likely than those in California to Google Star Wars topics.
