Should the Interstate speed be 55mph again ?
Everything we can do, even a little, helps... A recent study found that as a gas-saving device, 55 mph still works.
For every mile per hour faster than 55 mph, fuel economy drops by about 1 percent, said Jason Mark, clean vehicles program director for the Union of Concerned Scientists. The drop-off increases at a greater rate after 65 mph. The faster you go, the faster the fuel goes.
I wouldn't be against lowering the speed limit though 55 seems a tad low.
Lowering the speed limit also discourages long road trips and commutes.
No! The amount of oil saved would be insignificant.
The solution to the oil problem is finding more oil and finding alternatives to oil.
Yes, id like to save gas :)
Why should it be 55?
