You’ll Commute 173,000 Miles in Your Life

Apologies in advance if this makes you want to quit your job and become an explorer.  Sure, that hasn’t really been a viable career since the 16th century, but whatever.



A new study figured out some stats on how much you’ll commute in your life, and the numbers are insane.



The average American will . . .



1.  Commute to and from work about 11,250 times over their career.


2.  Spend 408 days of their life in their car for those commutes.


2.  Spend $108,727 in gas and maintenance.


3.  And drive 173,203 miles.  That’s the equivalent of driving around the world seven times.
