I agree with the speed limit reduction point!

However, the oil-production war currently going on between Saudi Arabia and Russia is sinking the price of oil and thus its products. This makes it more difficult to get the general public behind any idea of reducing speed llimits to reduce consumption.

Alas, my 50-year-old son-in-law showed me Saturday night his brand new 2020 Ford Mustang...a GP something-or-other. It features a 760HP V8 that makes 17 MPG on the highway. I attribute it to his mid-life crisis. I doubt he drives any slower in his new ride.

He showed me his new car not long after I was complimenting my Mazda3 on its highway mileage potential.
