Nope,  because you haven't given anything for us to work with.

It could the database configuration.  It could be the hardware.  It 
could be poorly written queries.  It could be that you aren't vacuuming 
the database often enough, ect, ect.

A good place to start looking would be to use the explain command to 
look at the query plans for some of your queries.  Post some to the list 
if you need a hand.
