That's symmetry for you. Good job!

My short daily commute kills my MPG, so I'm happy to just get EPA

Nice goin! I've found the same thing, that the best mpg is long slight downgrades.

I think that is because with the steady help of gravity very little gas is needed to maintain speed over a long distance. The extra air in the tires (above 33) and newly paved / very smooth concrete road surface further magnify the benefit, because of the reduced tire roll resistence.

Principles supporting my driving style for even higher EX mpg:
Have the engine operate as little as possible, especially when standing still or moving slowly; while also meeting my demands for power and maneuvering. This means most battery charging while cruising city streets and rural roads, max regen from slowing down and downgrades, and only using heater or A/C when the engine is on for other purposes.
