speed shift points for 1LE

What are the speed (or rpm) shift points for city/suburb driving? I've been shifting @ 2k rpm and find myself in 6th by the time I hit 45mph and the engine is turning at about 1300 rpm iirc but I don't hear the engine lugging. My goal isn't to maximize fuel economy, but I don't want to stay in any one gear longer than needed nor do I want to harm the engine.

I referred to the owner's manual (page 9-32, I think) and it's the first one I read that doesn't list recommended shift points.

Thanks in advance!
