Question about Cars & Trucks
Could be some tire noise. If your tires are out of balance you can have this develop as they accumulate wear.

If you are experiencing a "shimmy" that only occurs at a certain speed, I'd suspect a tire balance issue. If it were in the alignment, the problem would manifest itself at all speeds not just at 60 mph. There's a chance that a wheel weight fell off or the tires have uneven wear. If you do have uneven wear on the tires, then you may worn front end parts that need to be dealt with. Incorrect tire pressure can cause uneven wear as well. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: POOR GAS MILEAGE
Have you changed the fuel filter? I know it sounds weird but a plugged filter will make a truck use more gas. The computer tries to compensate for less fuel by commanding the injectors to open longer. Also a plugged filter will cause excess back pressure on the fuel pump making it loud.. Good Luck.

Either the tires have slippe belts in them, mainly old or worn tires. Or more common is one of your wheel bearings is going bad. Could also be an axle shaft. Jack up the front of the vehicle and grab the wheel and see if you can move it up/down or side to side. see if there is excess play to check wheel bearing issues

Check wheel balance,
check steering linkages for loosness - such as tie rod ends, steering rack linkages etc,
check driveline for worn/loose joints and bearings.
