NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Sitting in traffic is more than a waste of time. A new survey shows it's a big waste of gas and money.
Americans are wasting nearly 2-billion gallons of gasoline a year while stuck in traffic.
That’s according to a new report from the treasury department.
Also, those drivers who frequently travel through cities with many roads in need of fixing end up spending more than 400 dollars a year extra to patch up their rides.
