The appearance of the City of Angels on this list won’t shock anyone—after all, who in this city walks anywhere? According to the Texas Transport Institute’s “Urban Mobility Report,” residents of Los Angeles wasted 485 million hours and consumed 367 million gallons in excess fuel at a total cost of roughly $10.3 billion while stuck in traffic jams every single year. That’s 70 hours a year on top of the normal commute—pretty impressive given that some people don’t even get this much vacation time.
