Driving and blocking the left hand lane like that causes an obstruction.
+1. It's called a passing lane, so do some passing and move back over. I generally drive slower than the average driver, and stick to the right lane. When I pass in traffic, I'll increase speed to match the speed that lane is going, within reason. I have a 'personal limit' I'll speed up to, but won't match the guys going 25 over. Those people get their due eventually.
I also taught my wife how to drive interstate roads, she never got to get out of 55 mph single lane roads til she met me lol. Proper lane discipline was the first lesson.
