They say keeping the tire at the correct inflation increases gas milage.
Are you really increasing gas milage, or are you simply increasing the diameter of the tire?

It seems like running 1 or 2psi soft would make dry traction better.

you're making the tire have slightly less contact with the road, less rolling resistance since its harder. yes, a couple less psi improves dry traction but can make wet traction worse.
