Is it necessary to change between snow and summer tires, or just have all season? -

Depends if the tires you have now has snow studs then you would probably want to put a least all season tires on in the summer -
Answer 2
Tire rolling resistance makes a difference in fuel consumption on many hybrid cars. Some car manufacturers initially put low rolling resistance tires on there cars.
