I drive a 2009 SE Coupe and when I first got the car I got roughly 27MPG average with 75% highway and 25% city driving. Now that it's thoroughly broken in I am getting a solid 30MPG with the same kinds of driving. Although I could possibly get more if I didn't have such a lead foot.

My point, if you want good gas mileage you have to drive to achieve it as well as wait for your car to break-in. City driving kills MPG, if you're doing lots of it vs. highway driving, that explains it.
