Gas prices nearly back to pre-Harvey levels

AAA: Premium Fuel Not Worth The Price

Kansas gas prices tied the second largest weekly decline in the country, falling another four cents per gallon to a statewide average of $2.28. The national average has gone up 23.6 cents since previous year and is also up 11.4 cents since last month.

Interestingly, according to AAA's research, this myth is so hard to extinguish because it holds a grain of truth in it-AAA found that fuel economy did increase in the vehicles tested, but by a tiny amount: an average of just 2.7%; and horsepower did rise, but by a similarly piddly amount: an average of just 1.4%.

The least expensive gas price averages in Georgia were in Dalton at $2.23 per gallon, Warner Robins at $2.23 and Catoosa-Dade-Walker at $2.24. AAA says drivers can expect pump prices to continue to drop heading into the holiday season as supply strengthens.

If your engine makes a pinging or knocking sound on regular fuel, AAA said higher octane gas might resolve your problem, but it's a good idea to get it checked out by a professional first.

Amid sexual misconduct allegations, Sen. Hirono calls for Trump's resignation
And you treat women like punching bags because it's fun for you because you're intimidated by women. Sarah Huckabee Sanders , good luck today in the briefing, don't lie.

Last year, almost 1.5 million new vehicles sold in the U. "Now we can confidently say that unless the vehicle manufacturer requires it, or you drive in demanding conditions, motorists who buy premium are wasting money at the pump". The vehicles AAA tested averaged just a 1.4% increase in horsepower. That means filling up a 20 gallon tank would cost an additional $10 when using premium fuel.

"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". But most engines are created to run on Regular all the time. On average, vehicles produced 1.4% more horsepower using Premium.

Test vehicles included a Ford Mustang GT, Jeep Renegade, Mazda MX-5 Miata, Cadillac Escalade ESV, Audi A-3, and Ford F150 XLT.

For those vehicles that do not recommend or require premium gasoline, AAA suggests drivers opt for the lower priced, regular fuel.
