  • AAA: Premium Fuel Not Worth The Price

AAA Northeast found in its weekly survey released Monday that the price of self-serve, regular is averaging $2.49 per gallon.

On Sunday, a tank in Rockford cost $2.42 per gallon, that compares to the national rate of $2.45.

"With the exception of some Great Lakes states where prices tend to be volatile, average gas prices moved lower in almost the entire country in the last week", said Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis for GasBuddy.

MA gas prices are up by a penny this week, but drivers can expect prices to fall this holiday season.

Saakashvili Freed, Marched Home By Supporters
The court's verdict marked a defeat for Poroshenko, who has faced mounting criticism for his failure to uproot endemic corruption. Mr Saakashvili lost the Georgian presidency in 2013 but was appointed governor of the Odessa region of Ukraine two years...

The local average was 23 cents per gallon lower than the national average of $2.47 per gallon.

"The modest fuel economy improvements found in AAA tests do not offset the higher cost of premium gasoline", AAA said in a statement.

In many cars and SUVs, Premium gasoline is "recommended", but not "required". The large drawdown demonstrates the USA growing export prowess, with EIA reporting that crude exports reached 1.4 million barrels per dayd last week compared to 500,000 barrels per day at the same time previous year.

"There's no question that higher-octane premium fuel has the potential to boost a vehicle's fuel economy and performance, however, engines have to be calibrated to require that fuel to see the full benefit", John Nielsen, AAA's Managing Director of Automotive Engineering and fix, said in a statement. The vehicles AAA tested averaged just a 1.4% increase in horsepower.

Former Ole Miss quarterback Shea Patterson announces transfer to MI
The Wolverines have undeniably taken positive steps forward, but they also haven't finished better than third in the Big Ten East. He committed to Ole Miss over a group of schools that included LSU and USC. "Brandon welcomes competition", Peters said.

If you're not sure whether your vehicle requires or just recommends premium fuel, you can find that information in your manual. The research revealed that while recommended premium might upgrade fuel economy and performance, the additional cost isn't worth it. Higher levels of octane allow engines to run at higher compression ratios without knocking. "AAA cautions drivers that premium gasoline is higher octane, not higher quality, and urges drivers to follow the owner's manual recommendations for their vehicle's fuel".

Of course, the AAA study wasn't exactly high science-it (or, rather, the Auto Club of California, which actually physically ran the tests) tested only six different vehicles: a 3.5-liter Ecoboost Ford F-150, a 6.2-liter V8 Cadillac Escalade, a 5.0-liter V8 Ford Mustang, a 2.0-liter four-cylinder Mazda MX-5 Miata, a 1.8-liter four-cylinder Audi A3, and a 1.4-liter four-cylinder Jeep Renegade.

Horsepower for test vehicles averaged an increase of 1.4 percent.

Palestinian leader won't meet Pence in snub over Jerusalem move
Egypt's UN Ambassador Amr Aboulatta said the USA decision would have "a grave, negative impact" on the peace process. Many protesters also decried the "weak reaction" of most Arab leaders to the controversial USA move.
