On the Road Again

Back in 2006, the Midas muffler (etc.) people conducted a nationwide search for "America's Longest Commute."  The winner made a 186-mile drive--each way--five days a week to his job in San Jose, CA.

At today's gas prices (averaging $4.51 for regular in the San Jose area), that one-way trip would cost $41.94 in gas alone in a vehicle averaging twenty miles per gallon.  So a week's commuting would come in at about $420.

No word as to whether the lucky winner ("I have a great job and my family loves the ranch where we live.") is still making this trek.  Just a guess, but I doubt that Midas will be reprising this promotion any time soon.
