For a couple of weeks now, I have had the thought that if we just lower the speed limit on interstates and highways everywhere in the United States we would save gasoline and then be able to reduce some demand, lowering the prices of gasoline.

While I was surfing the net, I discovered just the same idea from a CNN reporter. I am not stealing the idea, but rather now just publicizing it.

It is said that the most fuel efficient speed for highways and interstates is 58 MPH. Read it any way you want to, but if the politicians and the public were really interested in a short-term plan of reducing gas consumption and gasoline prices we would lower the speed limit to 60 or 65 MPH. Some people would still drive faster than that, but at least the majority would drive at lower speeds, reducing consumption and in turn reducing the demand.

It is sort of ironic that in the last year or so Iowa has increased there speed limit on interstates from 65 to 70 MPH and highways have increased by 5 MPH too. If Gov. Chester Culver really was interested in making Iowa fuel efficient/eco-friendly he would have not passed a bill that increased the speed limits.

Just a thought.


One response to “Gasoline

  1. There is a SOLUTION to high gasoline prices.

    The Transduced Engine

    GASOLINE NOT NEEDED. The creation of the transduced engine is by a former United States Marine whos remained unnamed do to threats.

    The engine used no fossil fuel no giant 300 pound batteries, but a self contained 346hp fluid dynamics worm drive powerplant. Already capable of going into any vehicle here in the US. The engine is a combination of electrical and fluid dynamics to produce power to the drive system with compressed air flow and on the go regenerative components in a self charging package.

    It has no spark plugs, no fuel injection system no exhaust, no emissions, no polutions, no antifreeze, a list of 100 regular things a gas or desiel engine requires.

    So what gives why cant everyone have one. Well the Federal Goverment doesnt want it built. Why? Because Oil guys will loose there shorts, Big business will loose money, an estimated 500,000 would loose there jobs in the Auto Unions because what they build is not needed for the transduced motor.

    BUT if the Big 3 did utilize the Transduced Engine it would take only 140 days for the Suadi Kings to loose 10 trillion dollars in oil sales forcing them to depend on the US not the other way around.

    You really want to make a difference and never have to pay for gas again. REALLY?!! Then post this everywhere and on JULY 4th 2008 be ready for the introduction of the Transduced Engine information to be releaded Built BY AMERICANS FOR AMERICANS!!!!!

    Post this and send to everyone you know.
