"I drive 55mph" on the 65mph interstate.

I'd like to get some advice, tips and personal experience from those that drive 55mph or slower on the 65mph highways. Here in the Northeast, the interstate highways have a 65mph speed limit. I used to go 65, then got comfortable doing 62, then 60, and now i like to target 58mph max cruising speed.

I know some hypermilers and members here do 55mph, and even far below. I did 55mph behind a truck on the less populated Intestate in NY once, and the mpg gain was fantastic! Please help me and other Americans slow... down...
