What does the average Uber driver make in your area?

I read that certain states, Uber drivers make way more compared to others. I would imagine this has to do with the general need to have someone drive you around. So places like New York and L.A. would have a higher demand for something like this, right?

Uber drivers typically collect $24.77 per hour in passenger fares. From that, Uber takes $8.33 in commissions and fees, about a third of all passenger fares. Vehicle expenses like gas and maintenance cost drivers about $4.87 per hour, Mishel determined, even after taking into account their tax deductibility.

While being an Uber driver can be great, figures on hourly income can be elusive. I personally drive in the Midwest, and I’ve made anywhere from $5 an hour during times of high driver supply and passenger demand, to more than $50 an hour during a glacial snowstorm when almost all other drivers were hibernating like bears in their beds.

I'd say they average around $5 an hour but this doesn't include tips. If you live in an area that tips well like I do, you end up making more. I driver 3 to 4 hours on the weekends and make between $12 and $20 and hour including the tips.

With tips, it probably averages out to $10 an hour which is not much but hey, you get to set your own hours and driver around. So it is not entirely all bad.
