Most of us here know a lot more about fuel economy than most reporters. Perhaps the reporter saw higher city mileage than highway, got confused, assumed it was a mistake, and switched the numbers or something...

I'm in Indy right now. It only starts getting hilly 100 miles south of Indy, everywhere north all the way to Chicago is flat.
It's been a while since I have been to south western Indiana but south east Indiana starts getting hilly about 20 miles outside of Cincinnati.
