A one is likely cheaper than a zero.

The sign is presumably just past the last gas, so moving it a mile down the road for a nice round number would make people do an extra 2 miles to go back for gas once they've read it.

Bad assumption, the last gas could be 40 miles or more back the other way.

This sign:


Was within the span between Truth Or Consequences and Reserve indicated on this info sign. (The distances didn't agree with the sign locations, but snow prevented me from going all the way to reserve to see which one was correct)

Not if you knew you could go 110 before running out, pushing that extra mile would suck!

Saw this one at a rest stop in New Zealand.



We passed, but didn't get a shot of, one that read 'If you drink and drive then you're a bloody idiot' Straight to the point

Since there is no red slash through that sign it must be OK to cliff dive.
