Lower your tires RR

Increasing pressure is a cheap way to lower RR and increase tire life. Don't hesitate, inflate.

Seriously, proper inflation and tire selection can make a huge difference.

An old report on low rolling resistance tires available:

Green Seal Report
. (pdf version, longer download)

The latest info can be gathered from Consumer Reports. They consistently test new tires, but require a subscription to access the data. Libraries may have the issues for free...
