If it feels like your daily commute is taking longer these days, you may be right.

On average, Americans are spending 51 minutes a day behind the wheel. New research from AAA reveals Americans are spending an extra 20 minutes driving each week compared to 5 years ago.

AAA says drivers in the west spend the most time driving, at nearly an hour a day followed by drivers in the northeast.
