When moving from College Station, Texas, to Houston more than 20 years ago, my primary goal was to live within a 10-minute drive from the office. At that time in life I figured my Road Therapy had been maxed out. Fortunately, a home in my price range was located 1.1 miles from work.
Unfortunately for many, their commute is far greater. Robert Half surveyed workers from 27 major U.S. cities asking about their average commute times and the relative stress level of commuting. More than 2,700 responded to the survey in September 2017.
The top-10 cities with the longest commute times are listed in the following table, including average commute time in minutes.
Commute time is not the only component of the commute, as stress is a major issue. Respondents were asked about their relative stress levels during their commutes, with the relative rankings as follows.

My Road Therapy today is 12 minutes across 3.6 miles. For those that drive more or longer, my true condolences.
If you have a particularly stressful commute, reply back and we will post.
