Same for me. Although we call it a company ute, not a truck! I log on remotely, and don't even go to the office some days.

Well, it's ~25 miles each way

In the morning rush, it's an easy 1.5 - 2 hours

Depends on how many boroughs I utilize or state lines that I choose to cross

Leave a little early, 1hr 15 minutes

Coming homes an easy hour and a half, usually closer to two

I haven't had a job in almost 17 years. But I travel around the country pursuing my hobby.

When I worked (43 yrs), I traveled between 10-15 miles each way and 4 different jobs.
The last 38 yrs was with two large corporations and before that I was just puddle jumpin'.

3.75 miles from parking lot to parking lot. From door to door takes 10 minutes or so. The only safe alternative to driving would be a motorcycle. Walking, scooter/moped and bicycle are for those who don't care about their lives.

I'm 7 miles from work.

My normal commute is a 15 minute drive to the airport, then usually 20-30 hours of travel. Do that a few times a year.

When I help the guys out at home, it's 57 miles one way, and they pay me mileage.

Lol me too. But once I'm in my work van it could be 50 to 300 miles any given day. I average about 1200 to 1500 miles a week.
