National speed limit pushed as gas saver

WASHINGTON (AP) -- An influential Republican senator suggested Thursday that Congress might want to consider reimposing a national speed limit to save gasoline and possibly ease fuel prices.
Sen. John Warner has asked the Energy Department at what speeds vehicles would be most fuel efficient.

Please no. This won't save any fuel, all it will do is cause the cops to spend more fuel chasing down speeders and bring in more money for the government to waste.

I'd agree. This is dumb.

If people want to save fuel, they'll drive like it. I know that already in the past year I've noticed that people are naturally driving a lot slower to and from work. We don't need a national speed limit to "help us out."
