Quite so. Am glad to note that I am not the only one scratching the head
over that one...Probably the price today (in non-infllated-adjusted terms)
is at a premium over the one in force when a putative 95 (since in the old
days there was no 95 IIRC) cost less...
Similar/greater confusion exists in other countries, especially where
91-octane (European/international) is still available.
Devalues the language. What is premium when there is a super? Super petrol
at a premium price? Or peremium petrol at a super price?
What about the hotels whose basic room in the broom cupboard by the clanking
lifts is called "superior" and the next one up is "executive".
Superior to what? A bed in a toilet? The youth hostel next door?.
You can just see it, can't you? No more "good, better, best". Just
"superior, executive, junior suite".
