My suggestion would be to use a modern latex*** terminal instead of
pdf. That way the fonts in plots will also match the fonts used in
your paper and you will be able to typeset formulas, subscripts etc.

*** - Not "set term latex", but a different latex-based one. My
favourite would be "set term tikz latex" (or "context", but you
probably don't use ConTeXt :). You can also use "standalone" option
and process the plot separately from paper. There are some other
terminals like epslatex etc., but tikz seems to be like the best
choice to me.
