Obeying The Law and Getting a Reward


do you have an answer for $4 a gallon regular unleaded gas? no? well, that's not good enough. over the last two years gas has more than doubled and will continue to rise. it will make it to $4 a gallon. what is your company doing to help you offset the rising cost of energy? that's what i thought, nothing. you know you're going to have to have an answer. i myself declared war june of 2004 by buying a compact car. i've also started a part-time job which i love and hope to make full time. now i'm instituting a 3rd line of defense. i will obey the law.

due to rising gasoline prices i have decided to start to obey the law more often. i'm going to start driving the speed limit on the highway in hopes of better fuel economy. normally i drive 70 to 80 mph around the city highways. i don't know how long this phenomenon will last. it will depend on how much my gas mileage increases. according to toyota my car is capable of getting 42 mpg on the highway, but normally i get around 34 mpg driving over 70 mph. the best i have ever gotten was 36 mpg. i'm hoping to see around a 5 mpg increase.

I drove 65 to work today. It felt so slow. I looked at the cars whizzing past me with a bit of envy. I am not ashamed to admit that.

I drive a TOYOTA ECHO!!!! it looks like an egg, takes about 3 months to go from 0-60... but I love it. You can't beat the gas mileage. I would have bought a PRIUS but I couldn't afford it.
