Washington DC Ranks #1 For Worst Commute In USA

Washington DC Ranks #1 For Worst Commute In USA

It’s no surprise that traffic in the Washington DC area is a pain, and commuting to/from work is THE WORST. No literately, the worst — according to a report released Wednesday by the Texas A&M Transportation Institute, Washington DC ranks #1 for worst commute in USA.


The average local motorist spends 82 hours a year stuck in traffic. Let’s put that in perspective: That’s slightly over 2 weeks of an average work week or nearly 3 1/2 full days!


Washington’s delay is 19 hours more than the average among other similar urban areas. Other top markets include: Los Angeles (80 hours), New York (74 hours), and Boston (64 hours.)


And as if that wasn’t bad enough, the report says our long commutes are costing us some major cash. DC also ranked #1 in the category of ‘congestion cost’ — last year, local commuters burned through an extra 35 gallons of gas being stuck in gridlock traffic; costing them a total of $1,834.
