How far do you drive to work?

Just got promoted at work, but have to drive alot further now. My daily commute will be about 90 miles per day instead of the 18 I am used to.
Just curious how far everyone else drives.

Lucky me. I'm a lawyer in little old downtown Coffeyville KS, and I live in the building right next door to my law office. My Camaro 1LE and my '04 GTO are used only when I have to go out of town to court, about two times per week, only get driven highway miles. The Camaro is brand new, and my GTO has accumulated 19k miles in 8.5 years. They have good lives, and I don't get my cars beat up parking in public lots every day. I've got a hailed-on-all-over Nissan Altima for my daily beater--grocery store, Wal-mart, etc. Having the Nissan is great because there's a lot of freedom in driving a car you don't care about cosmetically.

Mine was going at 6pm and coming back usually about 6am, so just missed traffic.

It was 57 miles each way for two years(114 total). And at first it really didn't bother me, but then it really did. But now it's 1.5 or so. I can dig it

4 miles each way

The worst part though...The average speed limit is 35 mph the entire drive.

100 mile round trip. The Camaro makes it much more enjoyable than the Honda Fit I was doomed to have as a DD after my wife quit working.

I wouldn't know what to do with the time and money savings if I had a short drive like some of you.

Oh wait, yes I do, I would spend more money/time on the Camaro.
