The Most Miserable Cities

The Wall Street Journal has ranked the most miserable U.S. cities. The misery index looks at local unemployment rates, increase in gas prices and change in home values to see which cities are most down in the dumps.

Phoenix, AZ tops the list as most miserable city with an index of 31.24.  The runner up is Portland, OR with 27.67. How can the city known for being an alternative universe where “young people go to retire” and “sleep till eleven,” and the best city for biking be so miserable?

Boston, MA is ranked as least miserable.
