Do 2006-2011 Civics get better MPG with Auto Trannys?

I am wondering if the automatic versions of the 2006-2011 Honda Civics really get better mileage than the manual versions. I notices auto rated at 36 highway vs manual at 34. I know automatics have come a long way, but are they really more efficient even for a good high mpg driver?

My last three cars where a tercel, a corolla and a civic, all manual. With those I could crush the ratings, often by 8-10 mpg, without granny driving. Would I still be able to do that in a newer model manual? What about a newer automatic?
