SALT LAKE CITY (AP) -- Utah drivers spend less time getting to work than commuters in most other states.

That's according to a new report by the U-S Census Bureau.

The report shows Utah drivers' average commute time is 19-point-seven minutes. In 2003, the nation's average travel time to work was 24-point-three minutes.

Davis County residents have the longest average commute with 20-point-four minutes each way, which ranks 192nd among all U-S counties.

Salt Lake County workers travel an average of 19-point-six minutes to work, ranking 205th. Utah County workers' commute averages 19-point-three minutes for a ranking of 209th.

New York's commute time topped the nation at 30-point-four minutes, while South Dakota workers had the shortest commute at 15-point-two minutes each day.
