Story of my life. My record from home to work is 35 minutes, but that was on a Saturday morning back in my bad old days of always standing on the turbo. During rush hour it takes about an hour, which is great because day care opens an hour before work starts. Since I can't just throw the kids out of the car as I drive past, I'm already late before I start.

Hypermiling helps my commute a lot because I'm not desperately trying to gain one car length at a time over a 45 mile run and it only costs me a few minutes.
