Title explains it.

I have a job offer, but it's 12.8 miles away from me. I was hoping for something a bit closer, since I know gas WILL be going back up.

I guess beggars can't be choosers, though.

12 mi is not bad at all. I used to have 50 each way a while back. Now I work at home though so zero.

About 6.

But I have had a job where it was about 200-250 miles a day in L.A. traffic.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:42:44 AM EST
64 miles a day
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:42:57 AM EST
I'm self-employed; most days I drive about 20 miles one way; sometimes, 92 miles one way.

12.4 miles round trip.

40 miles round trip in a 90' 5.0. Fun, but I pay.

Homestation, about 50 there, so 100 mi/day

I don't drive here.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:45:39 AM EST
4 miles one way. I come home for lunch, so I figure if things get real bad I can cut my gas usage by 50% by brown bagging it. But as it is now, I really like getting out of there for an hour everyday

I was making damn good money in that job though, almost $500 a week in mileage alone.

Well I patrol in an MRAP here , but when I get back to the motherland 19.28 each way.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:46:46 AM EST
Maybe 4 miles.

Moving next week to a new apartment, will probably be around 9 or 10.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:46:51 AM EST
120 each way. Not my truck and I don't pay for gas, plus I only have to do it maybe 8 times a month.

About 1/2 mi or so

43 miles each way... but we are now working from home 3 days a week.

150 round trip - fwiw I don't drive it everyday, I usually camp out every other day. Likewise it is about 80 minutes - so not that much worse than my old 14 mile 45 minute commute.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:48:49 AM EST
24 each way

110 roound trip for the last 24 years. It's no fun at all. In fact I really hate it.

200+ per day (.54 a mile) I love it! 30mpg car = toy money.

Nope, would be nice though. I have to fill up about every 3 days.

Roughly 1/264th of a mile … roundtrip.

About a 10 foot walk from my bedroom to my home office.

ETA: I don't drive it, I walk …
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:52:55 AM EST
60 round trip to the office.

A few hundred to thousand + a week when I'm on the road. Gawd I hate flying.

Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:54:07 AM EST

Have you considered a grow operation in your house? Tell your wife you are growing tomatoes.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 8:58:51 AM EST
75 each way.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 9:00:03 AM EST
16 miles one way. That can take 30min. to 1 hour (or more) on any given day (accidents, etc.). Typical NoVA/DC Area commuting.

Consider the commuting TIME more than the commuting MILES. You waste more fuel sitting locked in bumper to bumper traffic than flying down the road at a constant speed.

BTW - A commute of ~1 hour is my limiting factor.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 9:00:11 AM EST

About 100 miles worth of commuting a week and another 1600-2000 miles a week on the job.

100,000+ a year.

I just changed jobs, my last one had me walking 2 1/2 blocks-which was really great.

my new job has me riding my bike 1.5 miles.

When I was a sales rep (bicycle industry) I was driving 80K miles per year!

70 in a Dodge 1500.

depends on the area. I would love to bike to work except there is NO safe way of getting there without putting a bicycle on a major road and getting run down by someone who aint paying attention. That and i have to arrive to work looking presentable. Its difficult to do that after sweating it out in the Texas Summer heat while pedaling to work.
Link Posted: 6/17/2009 9:02:29 AM EST

About 12 miles each way on the highway or 7 miles on surface streets.
