1994 Ford Taurus 6 cyl Front Wheel Drive Automatic

i have a 94 taurus with a 130k miles and 3.0 liter v6 that according to a vin search produces about 140 horsepower. I get about 13 mpg city driving compared to the 20 plus I've read I should get. My question is, what can cause significant decrease in gas mileage like I am experiencing?
