| September 2, 2020

The World Economic forum ranks U.S. roads at 17th in quality out of 141 economically developed nations

With Americans increasingly using personal vehicles rather than public transportation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the personal-finance website WalletHub today released its report on 2020’s Best & Worst Cities to Drive in, as well as accompanying videos.

To determine the most driver-friendly places in the U.S., WalletHub compared the 100 largest cities across 31 key metrics. The data set ranges from average gas prices to annual hours in traffic congestion per auto commuter to auto-repair shops per capita.

Best vs. Worst

  • Boston has the lowest traffic fatality rate (per 100,000 residents), 2.16, which is 10.9 times lower than in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, the city with the highest at 23.47.
  • Gilbert, Arizona, has the fewest car thefts (per 1,000 residents), 0.61, which is 19.4 times fewer than in Albuquerque, New Mexico, the city with the most at 11.81.
  • San Antonio has the lowest average gas price, $1.75 per gallon, which is 1.9 times lower than in San Francisco, the city with the highest at $3.35 per gallon.
  • Corpus Christi, Texas, and Reno, Nevada, have the lowest average parking rate, $1.00 per two hours, which is 40.1 times lower than in New York, the city with the highest at $40.07 per two hours.
