The Highway Energy Conservation Act that set the speed limit at 55 was projected by the Federal government to reduce gasoline consumption by 2.2% nationwide. Actual savings were only in the .5% range. It was however, a major source or revenue for many jurisdictions as the limit was widely disregarded by motorists. Our family sedan went to a Chevrolet Caprice with a 305 and a Chevrolet Cavalier, which was a real P.O.S. and an embarrassment to a once great American Automobile industry. I think the Cavalier topped out around 55.
We ran another victory lap and then proceeded to the wood shed on #15 for pull-ups and push-ups. Prayers for Deuce, hope the ankle is OK brother.
Pleasure to lead, peace out….Tom.
