**— Estimated fuel savings were more than $69 per vehicle per year**

My bullshitmeter broke on this.

Why? Doing some back-of-the-envelope math here...

Assuming 12,000 miles driven per year...

Assuming fuel economy of 25 miles per gallon...

Makes 480 gallons of gas purchased per year...

Assuming $3.50 per gallon...

Makes $1680 spent on gas per year.

A savings of $69 per year...

Makes $1611 spent on gas per year...

Assuming $3.50 per gallon...

Makes 460.286 gallons of gas purchased per year...

Assuming 12,000 miles driven per year...

Makes 26.071 miles per gallon.

You don't think that eliminating a stoplight could result in a driver's fuel economy being improved by 1.071 mpg?

An improvement of 4.3% is unbelievable?

Maybe, maybe not. If that stoplight were on my regular daily commute, I could imagine a savings like that.

~~Or did I do some bad math somewhere in there?~~ Math corrected.
