Surprise, surprise!! Los Angeles drivers face the worst congestion in the U-S — spending an average of 90 hours a year stuck in traffic delays. That’s according to the fourth annual traffic index report by Tom Tom.

Congestion on freeways in L.A. increased by 2-percent last year, hitting its highest level in five years.

Tuesday mornings and Thursday afternoons are the worst times for traffic delays, while the study found Friday mornings and Monday nights were the easiest times to get around the Southland.

The worst commute of 2013 for Southern California drivers, the report said, was Thursday, Nov. 14, when a big-rig truck wrecked and burned, shutting down traffic in both directions on the heavily traveled State Route 60 freeway in the San Gabriel Valley.
