US Census data shows the average commute times for Oklahomans have dropped during the past five years.

The average home-to-work drive in 2005 was 20.1 minutes, which is 1 minute, 36 seconds shorter than in 2000.

If you live in a city with a population of 65,000 or more, the average commute is even shorter.

It is 17.1 minutes in Tulsa, 19.1 minutes in Oklahoma City, and 20 minutes in Broken Arrow.
