Yup! being behind 3 cars stopped at a red light is infinitely better than being behind that Mustang approaching the light @ 10MPH with no one in front of him. It happens to me quite frequently. And even if I have to stop, I'm the first one through the intersection when the light turns green...

Fuel economy is nice, but sometimes I just gotta put the spurs to my pony!
