We’re all aware that cars emit carbon dioxide into the atmosphere, and the more we drive, the more pollution we create. For most of us, the bulk of our driving involves commuting to and from work. Day in and day out, month after month and year after year, driving back and forth from work, our carbon footprint is always growing and damaging the environment.

Here’s How Much Time You’ll Spend Commuting to Work in 2019 (by City)

For many Americans, the most stressful part of the day is spent behind the wheel fighting rush hour traffic to and from work.

Here’s How Much Money You’ll Spend and How Many Miles You’ll Drive Commuting in Your Lifetime (By City)

Earlier this year, we published a report revealing the average American will spend roughly 408 days of their life commuting. That’s a lot of time to spend stuck in traffic, going to and from a job most people hate. But that got us thinking — time is far from the only major expense of commuting. For those who actually drive to work, rather than taking public transportation or carpooling, just how much does commuting cost in dollars and cents over the course of a career? And how many miles will we drive back and forth to work during our...
