45 Mpg on 80 Mile Round Trip

I traveled on a 80 mile round trip the other day, I reset the mpg in the driveway and drove the trip (90% interstate) and drove in the slow lane going 55 mph. 48mpg on the way there and averaged 45mpg when I got into my driveway. Temps were in the 60s. With gas over $4 a gallon, I will not be driving over 55 unless I have to.
