Maryland, Virginia counties top list of most expensive commutes in US

Bittersweet vindication — a new study shows people driving to work from Maryland and Virginia suburbs face the most expensive commutes in the United States.

Ten of the 20 counties in the U.S. with the highest commuting cost are within the WTOP listening area, finds a Bloomberg analysis of Census Data.

Charles County, Maryland, tops the list of most expensive commutes, with Fauquier County and Stafford County, Virginia, in the No. 2 and 3 spots, according to Bloomberg.

In 2017, workers from Charles County, Maryland, spent 388 hours commuting to and from work; that translates to an average of just under two and a half weeks.
