Holiday traffic has started already here on our local roads and we know traffic never ends in Ocean County. Even with the summertime traffic gone, our roads are still packed.

These were chosen by you, thank you for all the emails and your responses on Facebook...the worst traffic intersections:

Chosen By You: The 10 Worst Traffic Intersections in Ocean County

So many of you emailed me and I can't thank you enough for all of these. Summer seems to be the most aggravating for everyone, but now with the holidays, our roads are crazy, also.

There is so much traffic in Brick depending on the time you are there. Manahawkin is a biggie too, Rt. 72. Just to get to a grocery store could take 30 minutes while living five or ten minutes away. Several of my friends live in Manahawkin and they say this all the time.

We have a lot of busy intersections we have to encounter every day living here in Ocean County. We don't only have all these intersections and more, but the parkway which is crazy, shore traffic or not. The parkway, on any given day, let alone the weekends, it's crazy for the morning and afternoon drive.

Beachwood residents sending me the traffic on Rt. 9 I totally get, I sit in it a lot. The section of Rt. 166 and getting off of the parkway at S. Toms River is just crazy usually when everyone is coming home from work.

Stay safe, especially around the holidays. Everyone is moving so fast, let's slow down on the roads.

LOOK: See how much gasoline cost the year you started driving

To find out more about how has the price of gas changed throughout the years, Stacker ran the numbers on the cost of a gallon of gasoline for each of the last 84 years. Using data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics (released in April 2020), we analyzed the average price for a gallon of unleaded regular gasoline from 1976 to 2020 along with the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for unleaded regular gasoline from 1937 to 1976, including the absolute and inflation-adjusted prices for each year.

Read on to explore the cost of gas over time and rediscover just how much a gallon was when you first started driving.
