Default Cooler weather = better MPG?

Ok, for those of you that have gotten a break from the 105* plus weather, has anyone noticed better gas mileage since the weather has become more seasonable? Over the past 4 weeks my average mpg (going by both the overhead and calculations from gasbuddy.com) have gone up by an astounding amount. The overhead has gone from 13.1 to 16.3 as of this afternoon. gasbuddy.com has shown increase from 13.53 to 15.9. I was a little depressed when I installed the Volant CAI back in May but around that time is when the 100+* weather started coming in. My driving habits have not changed, maybe fine tuned, but not changed. It makes since that we would all be getting better fuel economy with cooler air for our engines to breath, but I didn't expect it to be over 1.5mpg. Now I'm really looking forward to puting those headers on!
