Although driving can be a hassle, driving is more stressful in some cities than others. Tulsa comes in at number 5 on the list.

According to NerdWallet.com, Tulsa drivers "experience 32 hours of delay per year, the low cost of gas and low population density makes Tulsa better than most for drivers."
