To drive or not to drive...

So as I drive my car around and think about letting it do all the work and shift gears for me, I come across a thought. When the car is in automatic mode it changes gears 2500 or less. Last time I checked, these are high revving engines. Why would I want to drive 45mph in 7th gear?? Shouldn't it be switching at 3300 to 3500??

Here's the question. What rpm/mph and gears are most of you driving around in? IE: 45 mph in 4th or 5th?? Why go into higher gears if I'm only at 3000 rpm??
