Nice but crummy city mileage

2003 Chrysler Town and Country Limited Fwd 4dr Minivan (3.8L 6cyl 4A)
I purchased my T/C in 3/03 and am very satisfied with it. However, city mileage leaves much to be desired. My old Buick Roadmaster wagon got 10 mpg in city. The T/C barely gets 12 mpg. Not good when gas is nearly $3 a gallon! Most of my driving is in city. Highway mileage not bad though...about 24 or so, 26 if you're easy on the gas. Overall, not a bad vehicle if you're willing to put up with less than stellar fuel economy.
The interior is VERY COMFORTABLE. You don't get tired driving on long trips and visability is great. It's nice to sit up high. Sound system is nice too.
Why not put the 250 hp 3.5 litre engine in the Town and Country? 215 hp is not enough. Also, features like a 5 speed transmission and cylinder shutoff system should be offered to improve fuel economy.
