July 10, 2009

Good news: according to a study by the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A&M University, congestion on America's roadways decreased for the first time since 1991. Bad news: traffic still costs drivers 4.2 billion hours of productivity and 2.9 billion gallons of fuel--or, in money terms, around $78 billion. We're not naming names, but Los Angeles, Washington, D.C., Atlanta, Houston, and San Francisco, you're not helping. [KickingTires]
