A lot of it is auto companies meeting those targets by using taller gears to get max cruising mpg, hence why the city mpg for a lot of cars has been fairly consistent while the highway mpg is improving more significantly on paper. It's better than nothing, but still, it would be nice to see more than just different ratios (and greater numbers of them) accounting for the majority of the increase in fuel economy, as I'd think that a lot of the technology going into the engine is what really helps improve city mpg.
