Gas Milage

Whats the deal with gas milage on new cars. I just got an issue of road and track magazine that had a bunch of hybrids in it, and the ford excape hybrid got 22/28 MPG. Isint that a little low? My mustang with a well built 302 and 3.80 rear gears (with a carb jetted for optimal power about 13 to one at WOT) gets 20 MPG on the freeway. It seems to me like new cars should be getting much better milage than that, but I just wanted to hear some other opinions.
