Trip Planning:

I am planning a trip to Atlanta to pick up another Metro. This one is an automatic, and will only see city trips. But on the way back, it will see highway. I know for 300 miles i'm probably not going to mess it up going 65 but I don't want to, so I am going to take the scenic route.

Now to my question. Google maps has me two (well three, but I made up the third one) choices to make a trip, two of them are pretty much all interstate/highway. One is a slower paced one. The time/distance are as follows.

A: 258 miles 4h 7m
B: 221 miles 4h 28m
C: 192 miles 5h 3m

I understand that driving 70/speed limit A would be the fastest, but would C be the "fastest" at 55?

*I know there are tons of variables, but I am wondering if my general idea is sound?
