Pre-COVID, the average American spends close to 38 hours annually stuck in traffic. The average vehicle at idle burns through about .16 gallons of fuel per hour meaning that you lose about 6.08 gallons of fuel a year if stuck at idle. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median wage for a worker was $23.92 per hour which means that if you were paid for the time stuck in traffic, you could expect a gross paycheck of $908.96!
