For the two years leading up to November it was 125 miles per day, before that it was 180. Now I call the unemployment office every two weeks and my car hasn't been started yet this week.

Work's about 30 feet. Now ask how far I live from skiing, hiking, etc, because that's what I do most of my driving for.

Last summer the company asked for ideas on how we could improve our "carbon footprint". I suggested allowing us to use flex time to avoid commuting. I surveyed the department (Engineering) of 28 and the average was 64 miles per day with the highest at 144. I figured that if we could only get our work loads / schedules to work out to allow us to not commute 1 day every other week, our department would save 20 tons of CO2 per year. They bought us reusable coffee cups instead.

...hell, even a styrofoam coffee cup is "reusable" if you don't mind the brown patina.

I don't work but i commute back and forth to college everyday, except Mondays when i ride my bicycle. Depending which way i go it's between 21.6 and 23.4 miles driving, but it's only 19.1 miles on my bicycle because i take a different way.
