Are you in an extremely cold climate? Very short drives where the engine doesn't get a chance to heat up? City traffic?
All those factors would lower your mileage, but I'd expect more like 18-25mpg for yours.
Is it running well otherwise? Any drivetrain noises? Did you check tire pressure? Something must be off.
In 2-3 months, the fuel economy will improve.
