Tandem Planes?

During my bike ride today I saw two planes in the sky that looked to be in formation. They were really close to each other like the Blue Angels would be during an air show, except just two of them, and they appeared to be normal commercial planes flying at normal speeds, low enough to not leave contrails but high enough that I couldn't hear them. I've never seen planes fly like that before. Would commercial planes fly in tandem to save fuel or something if they're both flying the same route?
