You don't have to drive at the speed limit. If you want to do 65 and get your peak MPG, there'* nothing wrong with that.

as far as efficiency goes it is true you usually get the best mileage at 65 but nobody is going to go that slow and unlike the muscle cars of the 60-70s todays cars must have better MPG at high speeds now.

I ALWAYS go around 60mph on the highway. People get pissed at me, sure, but I'm the one who'* getting better gas mileage than the Civic passing me Once people adapt to this, the demand for oil will go down and prices will eventually drop. Great idea, I say.

I drive sometimes at 60mph, and only a few people get angry at me. Electing the wrong candidate won't solve road rage.
