Default Low Gas Mileage on 2000 Accord - 4 cylinders

hi accord gurus,

On average, how much is the expected city mileage for a 2000 4 cylinder honda?
Mine barely does 21.6 miles per gallon and that worries me.
I have kept maintenance up to date since purchasing the car new from dealership. Tire pressure is fine.
Any other ideas please on what i can do to improve mileage? I read a post on changing the O2 sensor? What's that? Must I got to the dealership to get it done or may i just use a local Auto shop/Pep boys et al?


TIA!

Have you had the thermostat replaced in the last 4 years?
Had wheel alignment recently?
O2 sensor is possible but not likely unless the check engine light comes on.
Does one wheel get hotter than the others? That would mean a dragging brake.
A good local shop should be able to deal with this.
