“Road Frustration Index” is a Fun Tool To Track Fuel

Sep 23, 2011
As part of the marketing campaign for the new A6, Audi of America has launched a new website with its Road Frustration Index, a look at driving conditions across the US and their effects on driver satisfaction and fuel consumption.

The web-based application takes a look at historical and current data to give a picture of traffic conditions in major US cities    and, most importantly, how much gas the current driving conditions could cause you to waste per trip.

It may just be a promotional tool, but the site could prove useful if you’re looking to see what traffic is like in your area! You can check the Road Frustration Index for your city at www.roadintel.com.
