I don't have a commute now since I work from home, however my longest commute was 45 minutes. I enjoyed it the commute on the days I worked late. It was a peaceful drive home through farmland. I would put the window down (except when it was freezing out) and crank up the music and sing.

right now, it's the longest i've ever had and ever hope to have. it's an hour each way.

the shortest i've had was when i was a teenager and worked at a starbucks around the corner from my house. i think my commute was about 4 minutes. ugh, to have that again! haha.

12 minutes.  However, when there is traffic, it has taken me up to an hour.

it's about 4.5 miles but takes about 15 minutes, average. can be longer if I have to sit at every light. Longest? hmmmm, I guess it was about 24 miles and took nearly an hour even leaving home around 6am to get to work by 7am. We moved a little closer after a couple of months but it was still 15 miles and took 45 minutes, but we carpooled at that point, so it wasn't too awful.

It takes me about 20 minutes when I don't have to drop the kids off. I'm bit sure how long it's going to take me when I do. I'm guessing about 45 minutes
