HOUSTON (FOX 11 / FOX 26) - It's not in your head Houston drivers - your commute is stressful. However, it isn't the worst. It's not even in the country's top five.
Los Angeles came in first followed by Miami, Austin, Phoenix and San Francisco. Dallas came in 7th after Houston.
Texans likely aren't surprised that Austin, Dallas, and Houston made the top ten. However, Houstonians may be shocked to learn that Houston ranked just 11th when it comes to commute length -- with an average trip time of 50.56 minutes.
Washington, D.C. and San Francisco took the top spots for longest average commute, according to the survey.
The survey suggests that ample mass transit options lowers the stress and anxiety related to travel in a city.
For example, New York City was 4th in longest commutes at nearly 58 minutes, but came in 9th on the stress scale thanks to its expansive subway system.
The employment agency also offers steps employers can take to ease the pain for commuters including giving employees the option to work during hours when traffic is less heavy and allowing people to work remotely on occasion.
