Does Your Commute Stress You Out?

There are plenty of Americans who dread going to work each day, and part of that dread stems from their commute and I'm one of them!

A new survey finds:

  • 50% of Americans say their commute to and from work is stressful.
  • 45% say their commute is too long, which is up from 30% in 2017.
  • On average, Americans spend 48.37 minutes getting to and from work each day.
  • 19% of people say their commute takes more than an hour. 

Of course, where you live will definitely play a role in how you feel about your commute.

  • Of the U.S. cities surveyed, folks in Miami, San Diego and Austin are the most stressed out by their commute.
  • Workers in Los Angeles (65%), as well as Austin and Miami (62%) are most likely to say their commute is too long.
  • Folks in Washington, DC actually have the longest commute of those surveyed, 65.84 minutes, followed by New Yorkers (60.80) and those in Houston (59.15). 

I'm not sure how Chicago did not make the list. Maybe, we should be thankful because it could be worse!
