Extreme Commutes

Chuck’s entry yesterday brings up an interesting point. The U.S. Census Bureau just released its most recent study of how long it takes people to get to work. The bad news? The average American spends more than 100 hours a year commuting to work. Here are the top five states — with the longest commute times:

  • New York, 30.4 minutes
  • Maryland, 30.2 minutes
  • New Jersey, 28.5 minutes
  • Illinois, 27 minutes
  • California, 26.5 minutes
