Why Do Cars Come With 4-Speed Transmissions?

After taking a couple road trips and being raped by gas prices while my car struggles on the freeway at 3,000+ RPM, I'm wondering why cars come with 4-speed transmissions.
Like wouldn't it be better to just add another gear to improve engine efficiency?
I'm sure there's some reason why, but I just wanna know if anyone knows it lol.
