Not always - before my hypermiling days I was on a long trip on the freeway with some friends while listening to random CD's from my CD changer when one of them told me:
- You really like Bob Marley, no?
- Yes, why?
- Well it makes you drive at 50 mph... it will take a long time to get there!

Had not noticed I let the speed drop down from 70 mph... while paying attention to traffic no less, but apparently not to speed
