Gridlock Eases in Metro Areas

USA Today reports that traffic congestion is easing in many metro areas.
Traffic congestion dropped 30% last year from 2010 in the USA's 100 largest metropolitan areas, driven largely by higher gas prices and a spotty economic recovery, according to a new study by a Washington-state firm that tracks traffic flows.
That's an upside, I guess. You have to find good news wherever it may be, but I don't think that those folks who don't have jobs or can't afford gasoline will see it as good news.
