See if there's much difference between the load at 55 and 60.

I have found that at just above 60MPH I get right round 40 to 42 mpg this is steady. On my way from Bakersfield to OC I got an average of 36 MPG on this trip. From what others have told me I should get better MPG at 55 but I don't isn't this strange?
Try the different speeds repeatedly - for a full tank - so outside influences start to even out a bit.

If the car stays in the same gear, the lower speed should get better FE.
If it drops a gear, you can expect FE to suffer.
