Question? Why, if the summer blend is better for the environment, is there any need for a different blend in the other months of the year? I have a noticable increase in fuel efficiency with the summer blend over the winter blend. Having no need for a difference in blends might also drop the price.

Good question. That might vary by location across the U.S. My understanding is that the summer blend in the Northeast includes ethanol, which I think means fuel efficiency actually declines for most vehicles here in the summertime.
