Default Winter MPG drop

Why do the trucks get worse MPG in the winter? I dropped 2 MPG with the cold. My commute, driving style has not changed. My truck is garaged so I dont warm it up in the AM. Anyone know?

Winter gas has less energy in it. Everyone's mileage goes down no matter what you drive or how careful you are with the loud pedal.
