Default Reduced gas mileage

Hey guys,
I have noticed recently that my gas mileage has been getting worse.

I drive daily to and from work a 34 mile (55 KM) each way highway commute, with stop and go city traffic for the last 10 miles.

I was averaging around 18 mpg (12.5 L/110KM) but it has now increased to 16 mpg (14.5 L/100 kms). I am running no modifications and have not changed driving habits.

The truck has 29,000 miles (47,000 kms) on it. I know the spark plug change is coming up, would it make that much of a difference in gas mileage? I have noticed that the truck has lost some of it's "get up an' go". The air filter was changed not that long ago.
