With gasoline hovering around three bucks a gallon, the price difference between Regular and Premium grades of unleaded has become just a few percent. Back when gas was a buck, that 10 Aston-Martincent difference would add 10 percent to your total. Somehow the difference still is 10 cents which means at $3 a gallon, its a mere 3% to trade up.

We are trying to determine what level of auto insurance we need on our new car. My husband Auto_Accidentand I are disagreeing on the value for bodily injury. There appears to be three levels of coverage, which are fairly standard at $100K/$300K, $50K/$100K and $25K/$50K. The first number is per person and the second is per incident.
