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.
Gas prices aren't even close to a "crisis." Adjusted for inflation we are still well below the 1970s gas crunch costs and our overall economy is smoking right now.

Fuel economy depends upon the user, not CAFE or the speed limit. Select a vehicle that suits your needs, not your ego, drive it smoothly and track your mileage with every fillup and I promise you will enjoy lower fuel costs than what you have now. Always remember that you are running your own race. You need not fret that the neighboors have bought some huge pig of an SUV and you need not worry about some idiot passing you on the freeway.
