Default Possible Air leak from tires... or common to trucks?

Hey there guys, so I noticed yesterday my truck looked like it was riding a bit low in the front.... so I checked the air pressure and sure enough both front tires were at 22psi. When I bought the truck 2.5 months ago they were inflated to 36psi all around (Max is 44). Now where I live the temperature has been fluxuating a LOT, everywhere from high 70's during the day, to low thirty's at night.

Could this large temp flux have caused me to lose 14psi in such a short time (only 70 days)... or do I possibly have a leak somewhere in both front tires? What's wierd is they were at the same exact psi for both fronts, so if it was a leak I would think they'd be different psi's? no?

Agreed^^^^. Fill it check and it every few days. If it is a leak , you should know in a week or two.
