rpms go down when you upshift. since the higher gear requires more work to turn, they turn at a much slower rate when using the same amount of gasoline.
think a multi-speed bike..
when you go to the smaller gears it's harder to turn but easier to keep a high speed. the larger gears are easier to accelerate but your speed is limited..
