Commuting to work is rough. Period. There always seems to be traffic or an accident while you're rushing to get to work or home. I do not miss the morning commute at all. Before I started working on the morning show here at PST I remember that my morning and afternoon commute would be a mess. What should be have been around 20 to 25 minute drive would end up being more like 40 to 60 minutes.

I do miss waking up at 7am for work, but I do not miss the early morning traffic. The perk of being on the road at 5am is that there are less cars and traffic on the road! But I think I now know why my commute was longer than normal.

It was interesting to see that this Mercer County town made it to #2 on the list of towns with the longest commutes to work. It all makes sense now because I live in Mercer County and drove through this town to get to work. I can tell you, there was always traffic! Here are the top three towns that made that list according to NJ.com:

3. Hardwick Township, Warren County -- Average commute: 44.2 minutes

2. West Windsor Township, Mercer County -- Average commute: 44.7 minutes

1. Marlboro Township, Monmouth County -- Average commute: 45.1 minutes
