That just sounds like a battery in need of calibration. Charge to 100%, clear battery stats (there's a free battery calibration app that does this), let the phone die completely before plugging it in, charge to full again, then use as normal. You should see more accurate readings after that.

Thats the URL to a thread that has a battery calibration script. That thread talks about the script in detail close to the very beginning of the OP. The difference between the script and the app is it tells you when it will be done with the calibration. Also, before trying to use the script, download script manager from the market {FREE!}.

Boot into recovery, go under "advanced", and wipe your battery stats. Pull your battery, and let your phone charge with the phone off until the LED turns green. This will calibrate your battery more precisely. Also, your battery reporting seems a tad bit laggy. Are you on the stock ROM or have you recently flashed a new ROM?
