Are you 2 or 4 WD?

If you drive over 70 MPH on highway, with 2WD, 24 MPG is probably about right for pure highway.

I have broken 34 MPG for 25 miles by keeping it around 55 MPH on a nice stretch of highway with V6 & 2WD. I have struggled to get 22 MPG for 25 miles at 75 - 80 MPH on flat highway. And of course, everything in between.

I can get almost 30 MPG on my commute of about 14 miles to work, driving home I can take that 30 MPG and see it average back down to 20-21 MPG because the traffic flow is so different, with a lot more traffic lights. Construction in Fort Worth is ridiculous.
