LOS ANGELES (KTLA) -- No big surprise here -- Los Angeles is home to the most congested freeways in the nation, according to a report by the Texas Transportation Institute at Texas A&M University.
The study looked at 328 stretches of highway across the country.
L.A. grabbed seven of the top ten spots on the list.
The "winner" is a three-mile stretch on the Northbound 110 Harbor Freeway near Dodger Stadium.
The report estimates that 1.4 million hours are spent each year by commuters sitting in traffic at that one intersection, using using 2.1 million gallons of gasoline.
The second busiest roadway is just two miles to the south, where the Harbor Freeway intersects with the 10 Freeway near Staples Center.
Third place went to the 405 Freeway from the 105 Freeway to Getty Center Drive on the Westside of L.A.
The top three freeways where Angelenos waste gas are: the southbound 101 Freeway between Woodland Hills and Downtown L.A., the northbound 405 from LAX to Getty Center and the eastbound 91 Freeway from Anaheim Hills to Corona.
The research engineers who completed the study say the data can be used to address traffic problems.
They suggest building roads, aggressive responses to crashes to keep traffic moving and giving incentives to employers in congested areas that offer telecommuting and flexible work hours.
