The comments you guys made seem to prove my point. It's mainly a perception thing. My commute is 55 miles each way and I have added 20 minutes to my commute my commute now takes an exact hour from the time I turn my car on. My inner city driving becomes faster because I can better time the lights and get more greens than reds. And if I feel like I have to speed up my commute, I have found that P&G between 55 and 65 gets me home faster without sacrificing MPG's.

We have been conditioned to speed and agressive driving since day one. Bad habits die hard I guess.
