work, how many miles from home

How many miles is your commute to work from home? I read today the average is 15 miles.

lol Good call. I have a 15 minute commute one way.

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

I drive 22 miles one way, up from 8 miles a couple of months back but I moved by the lake so I can't complain. What's f'ed up is I had to check mapquest for the distance, it says 29 minutes for that commute. I have come close, but never that fast, and I drive at the top tier of the traffic speed.
