Rush hour commuters in the Los Angeles-Long-Beach-Orange County region spend 93 hours each year in stalled traffic. The report from the Texas Traffic Institute estimates that gridlock costs the Southern Californian rush-hour commuter $1,598 a year and 61 gallons of gas. The area has actually seen a five-hour improvement year over year, but it would take 232 additional miles of lanes this year just to keep congestion from getting worse. The answer from the experts: tolls. Take it from someone who lives in the toll capitol of the world, New Jersey, it doesn't help much.
