    eh, idk. idc.
    I think that there are some numbers which would help me make my decision. But Idc to look for them.
    For most of my driving the difference between 55 and 70 is a matter of only a few minutes--one of the many, many reasons why I don't speed or do crazy lane switching.

    The big differences would come from truck lines etc who drive on the interstate much, much, much more than I do.
    I may be wrong.

    I am only interested in what warmers would do. If you are not an AGW freak I don't care how fast you drive or what you drive.

    Do you believe you'll get better gas mileage on a flat Earth or a round Earth?

    It depends on where you start.
    If you start on top of the round earth and drive toward the bottom, you can coast a lot. But if you start at the bottom and are headed to the top, it's all uphill. In which case, driving on something flat should yield better mpg than driving uphill.
    I may be wrong.
