My wife, born in Virginia, MN, says "uff da" with startling regularity.

I'd never thought of the "uff da"/"oy vey" comparison. I'm not sure I agree 100%; my understanding of "uff da" is that it's more akin to "oh, jeez", where "oy vey" (at least in my family) carries an undeniable air of "woe is me; my life is such torment".
