on average, a longer commute than most any neighborhood in America.

round-trip commutes is higher than NeighborhoodScout found in 99.9%
of all neighborhoods in America.

We Americans love our cars. Not only are they a necessity for most Americans
due to the shape of our neighborhoods and the distances between where we

most households in America have one, two, or three cars. But NeighborhoodScout's
exclusive analysis shows that the Mine Run / Burr Hill neighborhood has
a highly unusual pattern of car ownership.

or more cars. That is more cars per household than in 99.4% of
the neighborhoods in the nation.
