Oregon:
No 75-95

You could almost argue that US-95 could work. There's a few places where 95 is way way too fast (Jordan Valley and Rome, to name a couple), but for large sections of it, it's probably doable.

Texas list, 30 to 75

30 - none found (except I-30 frontage roads, which I don't think should count)
SH 35
BI 40-D
BI 45-J (these BIs were my last resorts)
FM 50
SH 55
FM 60
SH 65 (most of it)
US 70
US 75
Bonus: SH 130 is posted at 80mph for most of its length, which would be 130km/h if we used metric.

A few more TX candidates:

TX (SH) 30 - College Station to Huntsville. A little slow for most of it.
FM 40 - Lubbock-area. Having never driven but only judging from a random sampling of GSV, looks a little slow.
TX (SH) 45 (access roads along Toll 45) - Austin-area. Just about right.
US 80 - Dallas (Mesquite) to LA. Too fast for all but a couple of short stretches.

Why'd I miss US 95 x.x

For Georgia:

I-20 - definitely not
GA 20 - could be somewhat plausible in a couple towns, but still slow for a state highway
US 25 - perhaps through some towns
GA 25 - likewise
GA 30 - certainly through towns (Americus, Cordele, etc.)
GA 35 - certainly through towns (Thomasville, Tifton, etc.)
GA 40 - quite plausible, especially for the eastern third of the route
GA 45 - a largely rural route in SW Georgia; might be a bit slow in parts, but certainly doable
GA 50 - yeah, that could work
GA 55 - great!
GA 60 - could work on some stretches south of Dahlonega. Too many mountains north of there.
GA 65 - yep, except for the east end in Pelham (if GA allowed this on 2-lane roads, anyway)

GA 70 - unlikely on what is largely a suburban route
I-75 - south of Macon, sure (if GA's maximum weren't 70, at least)
GA 75 - mountains all the way, so nope
US 80 - the Columbus freeway bypass has too many curves, and nothing else would qualify
GA 80 - rural, but not an expressway and not straight, so no
I-85 - maybe? Pushing it, but not completely insane. (Outside the Atlanta area, obviously.)
GA 90 - much like GA 80, but longer, so another no
I-95 - too much traffic for that
GA 95 - no way

When I first saw this I thought 88 on I 88 on the Illinois Tollway portion - that's reality. But since I cant use it because it's not divisible by 5, How about 55 on I-55?
