OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Roads in Oklahoma City and Tulsa are rated among the most deteriorated in the nation by a transportation group that says the roads cost drivers more than $900 a year in vehicle operating costs.

A report released Thursday by TRIP ranks Tulsa fourth and Oklahoma City fifth among large urban areas in the cost to motorists at $928 annually in Tulsa and $917 in Oklahoma City.

The report rated 45 percent of the roads in each city as deteriorated and in poor condition.

TRIP director Will Wilkins called on Congress to authorize a long-term transportation program to improve roads nationwide.

The report says the San Francisco-Oakland area has the worst roads and the most costly to operate a vehicle. The Los Angeles-Long Beach-Santa Ana area is second in both categories.
