Smile Better MPG at 62MPH then at 55MPH

I have a 1999 Camry LE 4 Cyl 2.2 Automatic

I have an ultragauge hooked up and it has been calibrated

I have found that at just above 60MPH I get right round 40 to 42 mpg this is steady. On my way from Bakersfield to OC I got an average of 36 MPG on this trip. From what others have told me I should get better MPG at 55 but I don't isn't this strange?

Could it just be my car weight type of engine aerodynamics that cause right around 60 mph to be best speed for gas milage
