National Speed Limit?

Last week Virginia
Senator John Warner asked Energy Secretary Samuel Bodman to determine what speed limit would be the most fuel efficient. Warner raised the possibility of Congress passing a national speed limit to save gas and help deal with rising fuel costs. The previous national speed limit was set at 55 mph in 1974 and repealed in 1995. In addition to saving gas, Warner said that the lower speed limit resulted in thousands of fewer deaths each year. Warner would like the DOE to determine if a lower speed limit would also result in lower gas prices.

Yes, I support a National Speed Limit

NO, I do not support a National Speed Limit
