TC always locked up?

I was wondering if its normal for the RPMs not to go down when coasting down hill. Let's say I'm cruising at 70 and 2k RPM. The RPMs stay consistent with the speed, whether I'm on the throttle or not. Is this normal? On my gasser coasting downhill, when I let off the gas RPMs would drop.
I'm trying to figure out what's up with my crappy mileage. Just filled up today. Only 10.8mpg over the last three tanks, around town driving.
