Gas mileage

Since gas prices are so crappy lately, has anyone seen improvements in gas mileage?.. I know I don't drive with a lead foot nearly as much as I used to

Why has mine always been way lower than everyone? It used to be like 22, but I switched to synthetic oil, did some stuff with the intake (resonators) and got the K&N drop in...Would running one of those gas additives threw help, or like a tank of premium?
