I of course keep safety in mind first. I am only asking this question as it is something I have noticed and thought it was an interesting study of how people are acting because of the rising costs of gas.

Let's do a poll

i.e. do you slow down because:

A. I was putting on my mascara & blush

B. Eating a Big Mac

C. Taking a meeting on my cell

D. Pre-occupied (don't ask)

E. Couldn't find my fav radio station

F. That guy next to me looks "Hot"

G. Couldn't see the exit cause the map blew in my face

H. I had decaf this morning, don't bug me

Nobody has slowed down here. We are all in such a hurry to get to where ever were going. And we have to get there one second before the other guy.

I just hate it when I'm going the speed limit or even a little over and some one passes me just to get one car a head. I just don't get it.

I have to drive less than 10 miles to get to my job, and it's not highway driving. I put $25.00 worth of gas (at $2.799/gallon US) into my gas tank Tuesday last week. I still haven't run out of gas yet. It's not so much how fast I'm driving, it's just that I'm not going anywhere except to and from work. I also drive a route that has very few stoplights, so for the most part, it's a constant speed.
