Default What major cities are separated by 20 min. - 45 min. but form separate metro area's?

I was thinking about different metro area's and how they are divided. San Francisco & Oakland, Minneapolis & St. Paul, Dallas & Fort Worth, and NewYork & Newark form one metro area. What major cities are next to each other but are technically different metro MSA's? Which ones are close to becoming one MSA?

Isn't the 2010 census data coming out at the end of this month? C.D. will go wild on that day.

Orlando and Daytona Beach.
The cities are probably more than an hour apart, but the metro areas border each other.
