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. So if you get just one mile per gallon better gas mileage, then getting the more expensive gas makes it the cheaper option. So we wanted to know, is paying more for higher grades of gas worth the extra money?

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. If I understand correctly, our assets should be considered when determining which level to buy. We don't own a home and my best guess is approximately $100K. Have any advice? - Amy S.

Warranties of all sorts earned a bad name in the 1990s and with good reason.  Amid declining profits and increased competition, retailers started marketing 'peace of mind' products to consumers - insurance contracts they called warranties. For retailers the profit margins on these plans were enormous often exceeding 70%.  Compare that to the 20% profit margins on electronics and the 5% margins on cars. With warranties, retailers were often able to double their profit of on a transaction.

That might explain why the sales guys aggresively push warranties on every major purchase you make. Many consumers soured on buying warranties because of bad experiences with uncovered items or providers that went belly up.  Others began to see warranties for what they are - exhorbitant mini-insurance policies designed to maximise retailing profits.
