Early oil change?

I had changed my oil at 7500 miles and yesterday I got a message saying I had to change the oil again and it has only been 3550 miles since the last one. I don't do anything too hard on the Jeep, just commuting on the freeway, lots of hills in the city and city driving. No towing or anything like that.

I just found it weird that instead of the 8000 mile oil change I need to change it so soon. I'll still change it since the message says I should and the computer takes into account all these factors, but I was just surprised to see that. I actually just wanted to reset the message until it popped up again. Don't know if that's a wise thing to do.

Has anyone else experienced such an early oil change indicator after the last one?

Yes. I used the "turn the car on (not engine running), step on the gas pedal 3x within 10 seconds then turn off car." The message didn't show up until yesterday.
