Cakes not rising enough

Cakes not rising enough

So..For about a year or so I have noticed my D>H> cakes NOT rising..or "sinking" after pulling out from oven. Whats up? So frustrating to have a cake mix mess up! I make sure it is a fresh box ( not expired). IS D.H. putting less mix in the box? Expired baking powder? Whats up? I am tempted to use another 1/2 of another box, but don't want to mess up/baking time etc.? I am going to try some other brands, but have always been partial to Duncan Hines!
