In ordinary English, Rt. 68 stands for "Route 68" as in a state or
country road. For example, Parkersburg has route 68 also called "Emerson
Ave" that passes through Larkmead, Lubeck and on to Muses Bottom,  

Normally, I-68 stands for "Interstate 68" and is something entirely
different. It is spelled differently and doesn't use the "Rt." prefix,
which is misleading.

Sorry that you don't have a map.

So, you'd go up I-68 in WV at 12-15mph behind the trucks?

Wow.  Rosie's brother Elmo, the Little Corrector of Stupid Humans,
himself gets one upped and corrected and 0wned and promptly ignores
the shame of correction.  He can give it but he can't take it.

um, no, not at all.  Rt. 68 is still Rt. 68.  Sure, it's an interstate.  

I noticed that he never answered the question when I called him on his
claim of going up mountains behind trucks at 12mph to maximize fuel
economy in his rolling video game.

Non sequitor.

The trucks on the interstate that I follow are going up large hills at
55 mph using the extra climb lane. I'm quite happy to follow them. As
for I-68, I've never had occasion to take that route.

My experience in the past is if the truck is doing 12-15 mph on an
interstate, it is due to a construction or accident delay. In those
cases, all lanes and all traffic have been going at the same speed.
