Low Gas Mileage

I'm only averaging about 15 miles per gallon and I don't understand why. That's completely city driving with almost no highway at all, but even on long trips I get about 18 mpg.

Vehicle is an 2005 3.0L. Runs perfectly fine. I changed spark plugs, flushed all fluids (except tranny), and changed air filter last month. I only use premium 93 octane gas. Next on my list is to change the fuel filter and perhaps that's the culprit. Anyone else have any idea or similar problem?
