About a week ago I was paying about $4.36. Now it's already up to $4.50 a gallon. It wont be long until it hits $5.

No harm, your engine has knock sensors to make it run smoothly. The problem is you are going to get worse gas mileage then using 91 or 93 octane. It might come out to be a wash. I think the owners manual says 91 or better.

Down here in FL we have 87,89 & 93 so I only use 93. Gas was 4.05 today for premium.
