With the current rate of gas prices, why doesn't the government reduce speed limits (65 or lower) to force people to slow down and save gas? At least until the current crisis is over. When I leave town, I usually have to drive a distance of 75-125 miles one way. I drive around 65 and it does make a big difference on MPG. As far as travelling time, people have adjusted in the past and they will again. It seems that this is one common sense solution that would be easy to implement.
