    And if you live far away from your work, why and do you ever wish you live'd closer to work

    Over the last week it's been a 15 minute trip, but now that everyone is back to work it will be the usual 30 minute journey.

    35-45, depending on traffic. Then a 5 minute walk from the carpark.

    And yes, I'm moving. The cost of fuel, plus 90 minutes of my day every day sitting in a car just ain't worth the benefits the country brings. I'm off into the city.

    Thats how i feel now. Im going to be purchasing a home. But i really don't like driving to work that far. I like riding my bike or walking to work.
    Right now i can see my work from my bedroom window. One gas tank can last me a month or 2 months. I never use my car i never look at gas prices and i love it!

    To work it takes about 5 mins to work, and 10 minutes home (Downhill almost all the way) takes about 15-20 on foot (yeah, i walk slowly..)
    To school i use about 20-25 minutes on bus plus 5-10 minutes on foot. (would probably take about 45 on a bike, but i have to cross the road and dodge traffic on a bike, so I don't bother.

    I don't wish that i lived closer, because that would mean that i have to live in the city centrum, which i don't want to..

    ~40 minutes driving followed by a 5 minute bus ride from the parking lot to my building. Or just a 50 minute bus ride followed by a 2 minute walk. I've started riding the bus more.

    About an hour, its around a 40 mile trip one way and I don't want to move there because that would mean I would have to pay rent and school would be farther away. Its the only job I could find that pays over $20 an hour and was easy to get, moving wouldn't make sense because I would be farther away from school and I make more trips to school than I do to work.

    Used to do 2-2.5 hour drive to uni a couple of years ago. It's now a leisurely 5 minute walk after moving.

    20 - 30 minutes depending on the muppets in front of me, sometime as much as 40 minutes if I hit a busy spell.

    15-25 mins on the bus 1hr 10mins to walk. City center job parking meters are better paid than me.
