WASHINGTON — Some new numbers are out on the best and worst cities for driving in the U.S., with D.C. and Baltimore not-so-surprisingly showing in the top 10 worst cities.

D.C. came in as the second worst city, ranking just behind New York City as the worst city for drivers, while neighboring Baltimore ranked as the ninth worst.

WalletHub ranked the 100 most populated U.S. cities according to the costs of car ownership and commuting — in terms of time, money and safety — as well as the environment for leisure drivers. Wallethub then compared their sample across 21 key metrics, including: Average gas prices, average annual traffic delays, rates of car theft and car clubs per capita.

The District also ranked as the city with the highest average annual hours of traffic delays, and second city for the highest accident likelihood, compared with the national average.

Lubbock and Corpus Christi, Texas came in as the top two cities in the nation for drivers.
