I think most of us on here are old enough to remember the last fuel shortage in the mid 70s. I was driving truck back than and many of the companies governed their tucks to 58 mph. The great fathers in washington couldn't wait to cut the speed limit to 55 or lose you federal funds. Our fathers passed laws that the car manufactures had to meet a certain mpg average. All of this and the prices where some where around a $1.00 a gallon.
Here we are a little over 30 years later and this time the barely mention the price of gas. How quick we forget. mad.gif
