Kindlegen output from epub DOUBLES in size?

I just converted a few books using kindlegen and noticed:

112.8 KB --> 266.5 KB
407.3 KB --> 1.1 MB
544.6 KB --> 1.2 KB
632.2 KB --> 1.7 MB
281.5 KB --> 647.2 KB
249.4 KB --> 606.7 KB
87.9 KB --> 192.8 KB

Whoa... is this a shortcoming of the MOBI format or the kindlegen app?
