It's possible that they did not use the recommended weight oil -- for example, many import cars call for a 5W30, if they used a heavier weight oil, you could see a decrease in gas mileage. Other than that, it sounds like bad coincidence, an oil change really should have no noticeable effect on gas mileage.
