Where does Houston rank on list of worst commutes?

HOUSTON Houston placed third on the top ten list of cities with the worst commute. On average, Houston drivers spend an extra 56 hours a year stuck in traffic. That bad commute winds up costing us around $300 a month on auto expenses and around $200 a month on gas.

San Jose, California was number two on the list. Austin, Texas also cracked the top ten, coming in at number eight.
