uktitus is on a distinguished road

Sitting in traffic, stopping at lights, here in Seattle I go down to the lower 10;s mpg.On the highway driving at just below 70 I creep up to the lower 18's. Driving around town Seattle with slight inclines, lights, junctions the MDS is jumping in and out within a few yds as the engine is getting older it seams to do it more frequently. 5600 MLS on the clock. Could this constant quick changing from 4 to 8, 8 to 4 doing any long term damage to the engine? if so I might have to drive with a heavier foot. I have a 2009 5.7 3.92 Laramie.
