But then gas goes to $3.50 and everyone freaks out again.
I remember driving to Fl. when gas first hit $3 a gallon with my cruise control set at 65 mph. I was passing 75% of the vehicles on the interstate with a 70 mph speed limit. When the price of gas hit $4 per gallon the same thing happened again.

Today drive the speed limit on any interstate and you're taking your life in your hand with most people driving past you at 10 mph or more over the speed limit.
