With gas prices so high, why do I see so many large pickups and SUVs going 80-85 MPH on the freeway?

Do they not realize they are wasting gas as well as endangering lives? Is this ignorance or arrogance?
Logos Theos / ????? ?e??:

because typically if they can afford a vehicle that size they know what its costing in gas and they don't care also many of the big suv's and trucks get such horrible gas milage there sped doesn't influence it so it is neiter arrogance or ignorence

Bev:

Their brains are still baffled by the prices!

Defend ur rights:

Thanks for your answer. I am baffled by the fact that we are in a serious place right now and every one complains but not very many people make changes to their behavior or tries to make a difference.

Ev3nt H0riz0n:

Alpollo - you are the exception. Most people only get the message when it hurts their wallets. I guess it isn't hurting their wallet enough yet.

When prices of food, etc rise higher these people will have to choose between buying food and buying gas - that's when they'll dump their SUVs.

Ev3nt H0riz0n:

Not that I wish this upon them. I do hope that the economy gets better and everything is allright - but I fear it won't.

Defend ur rights:

Thanks for your answer. Maybe they don't realize how much gas they could save simply by slowing down. maybe they don't care. I also hope that the economy gets better but I fear things could get much worse before they get better.

Rick:

earth to alpollo, most service or construction business just pass the cost on to the consumer. If it's a 100 buck a gallon and it takes $50 worth of gas to get an ambulance to you. you'll pay won't you. Don't complain be proactive and invest in energy. I made 600 thousand last year off energy stock.

Defend ur rights:

Thanks for your answer. Will that 600 thousand be any good if the economy collapses and the dollar becomes worthless?

Rick:

I invest mostly out of the US. You can make better money when you invest out of the country. If you are a smart investor and I am, you cover all the bases. The world would have to end before I lost money. You can do it to. just think outside the box get out of your comfort zone.

NDWind:

"Is this ignorance or arrogance?"

It is neither ignorance nor arrogance.

However, it may be arrogance for one to assume ignorance in others.

If you see others driving 80-85 mph on the freeway, please do your part to save some fuel ... quietly get the hell over in the slower lanes so that you don't contribute to wasteful traffic slowdowns.

Defend ur rights:

Like I said, Arrogance

NDWind:

"Do they not realize ... ?"

Yes ... arrogance, indeed!

Defend ur rights:

I guess the 70 mph speed limit don't apply to you.
Yes arrogance indeed!!

NDWind:

But ... the point of your question was not about the "speed limit" ... now was it?

So ... now ... you have gone from arrogance to ignorance. Your ignorance is sad ... your arrogance laughable.

Defend ur rights:

The point of the question was that a lot of people are complaining about high gas prices but they are not willing to change their driving habits to save fuel. Either they don't know or don't care that slowing down from 85 mph to 65-70 mph reduces fuel consumption 15-20%

FitInRight:

They are in a hurry to get to the nearest gas sation so they can fill up that gas hog again....before they run out. lol
