Found the price limit

It would seem that $3.45/gallon for 87 octane is the limit at which people around here start thinking about getting better fuel economy. Yesterday's traffic was too light to notice much but this morning I passed several sets of cars without ever going above my usual speed of 65mph. Still a lot of cars dicing through at 80+, but there are quite a few more going under the limit now.

It actually makes my drive a bit more challenging as I have to make sure I've got room to pass without causing a backup myself. Oh well.

I'm still learning how to drive more smoothly and it is helping me keep to 23 miles per gallon. Tough sometimes when I just want to get by all the 50mph dawdlers!
