Oil change: miles or time?

Oil changes: miles or time? I drive a little 2011 Mazda M2. My commute to work is about 14 miles round trip. I don't drive it much else. My last oil change was January 2013 and 5231 miles. The sticker says next change is May 2013 or 10231 miles. Needless to say it's well beyond May 2013 but I'm still only at 9200 miles. Should I get an oil change or wait for the mileage?

I do routine stuff like checking my various fluid levels, making sure my tire pressure is good, that sort of thing. But what's more the driving force with oil change recommendations: time or mileage?
