What is "normal" on your temp gauge - around town? On the highway?

How's the temp gauge reading?

I was very suspect of my thermostat when my milage was in the highteens
and the gauge was only in normal operating temperature in the city and
always cool on the highway.  Sure enough--now getting mid 20's (normal)

I have heard these I-5's really depend on a good engine temp for really
good milage.

Just a thought.
