Do you have mixed feelings about commutes.  People I know usually HATE them.

But on the other hand, it's when people are listening to the Breeze.  So . . . yeah.  Mixed feelings.

According to recent reports, commute times just hit an all-time high.

The average American's commute was 27 minutes one-way . . . that's two minutes more than it was a decade ago.

And that adds up.  It's an extra 20 minutes a week . . . or 17 extra hours a year.

And all in all, the average person spends 225 hours, or nine full calendar days, commuting in a year.

One of the big reasons for the increase is commute times is cities not having enough housing, so people move further away . . . THEN cities not spending money to improve  roads and transportation, which makes their drives rougher.
