I have so many questions about traffic and accidents in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. It seems like every time I drive down McFarland Boulevard. I'm praying for my life. Either someone is on their phone texting, speeding, or worse like blowing through intersections when the light is red.

Several times in the past few weeks, while driving on McFarland Boulevard, it's been an accident every time. But, but McFarland Boulevard is not the only sore spot for driving. The list goes on and on.

What I can't understand is accidents at intersections with traffic light signals. Lookup; there is a traffic light signal. It's like nobody pays attention anymore.

Red means STOP

Green means GO

Yellow means caution and that a red light is about to appear. Or, in Alabama, it means speed up and make the light. This is what I call pure nightmare fuel.

My pattern of driving is to avoid McFarland Boulevard at all costs. I'll go a long way, the back roads and all. I drive a Prius, so it's only a couple of pennies more.

Here is what I think are the worst intersections in Tuscaloosa, Alabama. If you have any more, click here to email them to me. Everyone should know and be on guard because nobody has time for their car insurance to go up because someone else can't drive.

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.

Stacker used data from the 2020 County Health Rankings to rank every state's average life expectancy from lowest to highest. The 2020 County Health Rankings values were calculated using mortality counts from the 2016-2018 National Center for Health Statistics. The U.S. Census 2019 American Community Survey and America's Health Rankings Senior Report 2019 data were also used to provide demographics on the senior population of each state and the state's rank on senior health care, respectively.
