PORTLAND Ore. (KPTV) - Do you need your daily Starbucks fix before you can function? If you live in Oregon the chances are pretty good, according to a new study.

Oregon is the most Starbucks-obsessed state in the U.S. according to researchers at the price-tracking website Pricelisto.com.

The researchers counted the number of Starbucks outlets in each state and rated them in proportion to the number of residents per store.

Oregon has the most Starbucks locations in the US, according to the data. Residents seeking a caffeine fix have 401 options, which means there is one store for every 10,450 people in the state, the highest rate in the country.
