Stuck in Boston
According to The Urban Mobility Report, an annual publication out of Texas A&M, we're the fifth-worst city in the nation when it comes to traffic congestion. This means the average driver wastes 53 hours a year stuck in traffic and spends 1,100.00 on gas while on the road to nowhere.
