We’ve got a low cost of living, a relatively stable job market, affordable real estate (when you can find it!) and an average commute time of just 12 minutes!

Wait … WHAT?

According to Business Insider‘s list extolling all the reasons Dallas is easy on the wallet, most Dallasites have an average commute time that is just a quarter of an hour. Hmmmm…. looks like somebody didn’t check their math, because I’m sure all of the lovely folks parked on North Central Expressway between 7 and 9:30 a.m. and 3 and 6 p.m. would beg to differ.

Other than that, BI says our annual personal income is more than $43,000, we rank a 4.8 out of 10 on the “stress scale” (again, they should’ve talked to the folks on North Central!), and our annual job growth is at 2.28 percent.

Dallas came out behind Houston (No. 2) and Minneapolis, Minn., (No. 3). We beat Pittsburgh and St. Lousis to round out the top five. Want to see the whole list? Check it out here.
