Sounds low. I drive mostly highway, though some of it is bumper to bumper. I average about 23 mpgs. That number would be closer to 28 if I didn't have so much stop and go traffic.

When I was still driving mostly a 50/50 mix of city and highway I averaged about 21 mpgs. If you average 13 in the city you must be racing from stop light to stop light!

In highway driving 60~75mph I can easily get into the mid 20s.
Highway 60-75 should yield closer to 30 and above than mid-20s, unless there is a lot of elevation or your car is packed to the gills. I run to Austin/Houston every once in a while usually going 75-80 and I consistently get 30 and above.
