NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A new survey ranks Nashville second to highest among the top 51 metropolitan areas in terms of cost of commutes.

The average Nashville family spends about $15,000 a year on trips to work, school and shopping. That's about 30-percent of their income.

The Center for Neighborhood Technology said a lack of public transportation, long commutes, and high gas prices contribute to the ranking.
