Default Fuel and mpg

I've used 87 octane since new in our 2012 Ram. I usually get fuel at Pioneer or Canadian Tire. Gas prices here are $1.30/l ($5.90/gallon). I've had 24 mpg on the first tank, a couple of 23 mpg and then slowly started to use more fuel. Average from September 20 2012 to December 23 2012 is 20.1 mpg. January 2013 15.9 mpg. February 2013 15.2 mpg. Winter driving letting the truck warm up to long hurt fuel consumption a lot. Now that it is getting warmer it may improve. We also drive on cruise all the time at about 90-92 kph and most driving is 30 miles one way and on highways.
