Default What RPM's do you run at 60mph?

This is the first 4 banger I have had in a long time. My Grand Caravan runs at 1800rpm @ 60, but its a 6 cylinder. I was wondering what RPMs you all run at 60mph. I have the 5 speed and I run about 2200-2300 cruising at 60.

Has nothing to do with 4 or 6 cylinders, all about gearing.
My auto is about the same - 2200 at 60.

60? Seriously? You drive 60 around here, you'll get run over. I learned real quick that the posted speed limit signs are just a damn suggestion. I drive about 5 over and NEVER pass anyone. But around 2200 in my GT automatic at 60.
