In the US, they're discussing dropping the national speed limit back down to 55mph.

I'm personally against that both on principal[0] and practical[1].

[0] I don't believe it's the governments job to limit speed on the basis of fuel consumption. That should be the job of the free market (which seems to be doing a great job right now. I guarantee more people are buying small efficient cars here due to gas prices more than any tax credit they could have given.
[1] In the last 4 months I have driven two trips over 1200 miles each. That 75mph to 55mph is about 11.5 hours or 60 gallons[2] verses 52, an extra 8 gallons or $32 or 16ukp. I'll happily pay the money to not have to drive that extra 12 hours.
[2] Assuming 46mpg dropping to 40mpg which is an estimate for my prius.
