Either it's been artificially capped or it's getting warmer then it would like, I'm betting on the later. Make sure you have the vents clean of any debris and that's about all you can do.

If your running programs that fully utilize 4 cores then that's perfectly normal. The maximum turbo boost clock only applies to one core at full load while the rest are idling to almost idling.

Here's how the turbo boost is set for you:

1 core 3.1Ghz
2 cores 3.0Ghz
3 cores 2.9Ghz
4 cores 2.8Ghz.

This or overheating is the most likely issue.
