Always use premium gasoline on vehicles that require it. For this latest research, AAA partnered with the Automobile Club of Southern California's Automotive Research Center to determine what, if any, benefit premium gasoline offers vehicles that recommend, but do not require, the use of premium gasoline.

"Based on AAA's testing, vehicles that only recommend premium gasoline can't take full advantage of higher octane fuel and, as a result, the benefit that comes from upgrading to premium gasoline may not offset its high cost".

"We're anticipating prices about $2.10 a gallon", said Redman.

"The gap between premium and regular gas has been steadily rising since 2009, with the most dramatic increase occurring in the last two years", Jeanette Casselano, AAA gas price expert, said in a release.

The downsizing trend means an assortment of mainstream vehicles are now equipped with turbocharged engines and a number of them recommend using premium fuel.

Past AAA research showed no benefit to using premium gasoline in a vehicle created to operate on regular fuel.


Since drivers of these vehicles are unlikely to see any benefit from using premium gasoline during typical city or highway driving, a combination of laboratory and on-road tests were performed to simulate extreme driving scenarios such as towing, hauling cargo, and aggressive acceleration.

Test vehicles included everything from a Mazda Miata two-seats sports auto with a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine to a Cadillac Escalade with a big 5, o-liter V8 motor. The story could obviously be different in vehicles that require premium, but in many cases these are high-performance cars where owners are happy to pay up for a boost in horsepower. Individual vehicle test result averages ranged from a decrease of 0.3 percent (2016 Jeep Renegade) to an improvement of 3.2 percent (2017 Ford Mustang). "Look for another week of declines as refineries continue to produce gasoline at a much higher rate than what is being consumed".

While some vehicles are created to run on premium octane gas, others just recommend it.

Drivers who shell out the extra cash to fill their tanks with premium fuel may be wasting their money, according to new research by AAA.

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