The symptoms suggest the brakes are not fully releasing. Stop on a slight incline, shift to neutral, release the brakes, then see if the vehicle creeps downhill on its own. If it does not, open the caliper bleeder screws to see if a brake releases. If they do, start by inspecting the rubber bladder seal under the master cylinder reservoir cap to see if it is blown up and mushy.
