Default 06 Accord EX 4Cyl Fuel Economy

Hey guys. Just got this car in August and I only get 22 mpg. According to fuelly that is on the low side. I scanned the car with a pedestrian scanner. Nothing came up. Should I be worried? Is there something I can do better?

I noticed that if I drive more spirited I get higher mpg which doesn't make sense. I am also not that kind of driver but I did it to see what would happen. Also there is no traffic when I get out of work so I could do 80 if I wanted to.

I purposely used no heat or ac and it did not change anything. Very strange.
