The Nov. 22 front-page article “New Intercounty Connector strains Md.’s coffers” did not discuss fuel savings. I have used the ICC between Gaithersburg and Georgia Avenue, and I have used noticeably less fuel in my pickup truck.

When gas is at $4 a gallon, the fuel savings help cover the cost of the tolls. Less driving time and constant speed must save fuel.
