Yes, no amazing revelations to those who congregate here, but reading the comments section might be fun.
Yeesh! Talk about aggression!

They do raise some good points though, some hypermileing techniques (like I've been using lately) often aren't safe. Drafting, going slow (60 mph slower than the average speed! Not the speed limit on the sign, average daytime speed on I-91 is 80, if you P&G down to 20mph...eek!), not maintaining a constant speed in traffic, are great ways to inspire road rage.

Of course I work nights, I rarely see another car on my commute after labor day, still even the minimum speed (40mph) is 40mph less than the average speed. That really doesn't allow enough reaction time for overtaking vehicles that are taking an important call while eating a cheeseburger while dealing with the kids...
