Speed trumps conservation

A recent article in the StarTribune, Speed limits are increasing on Minnesota highways and around the country, discussed the trend toward increasing speed limits, both locally and nationally. The article however had not even a single reference to the impact greater speeds have on reduced fuel economy.  The general public's sentiments was summarized by Kara Macek, director of communications for the Governor’s Highway Safety Association, People just like to drive fast — sort of a bellwether indication of our frantic lifestyle and our need to get places quickly.”
