Welcome to Monday.

Whether you're hitting the road, sitting in traffic or already at work, you might think you had a horrendous commute (unless you're lucky enough to work just steps away from your desk). But WNYC radio pulled together U.S. Census Data on commute times to give you a better sense of if you have a right to complain about your commute or not.

As one might expect, city dwellers have lengthy commutes. Those living in remote areas also boast some of the longest commute times, presumably having to drive a great distance to reach their workplace.

Taking the best and worst commute times together put the average U.S. worker at traveling 25.4 minutes to get to work, according to WNYC.

In our own analysis of the some of the worst commute times, based on the map, it appeared that Normantown, West Virginia, took the unfortunate title with an average commute of 109.2 minutes.
