Hestitation at high speeds/high revs

My Insight has 63,000 miles. At speeds above 70, the vehicle hiccups, revs drop slightly and then it passes. Has anyone else experienced this problem and what was the solution. I am also concerned about low mpg. On a recent 650 mile mixed use drive I am getting below 50 mpg.

If you have a 5-speed, it's possible that you are on the verge of lean burn, which does cause a change in power.
70+ mph is probably at the upper end where lean burn is available, and also may be the reason for the low mpg.

Another possibility is the egr valve acting up, which has been discussed before on the forum.
