I did the calculation for you and the price for premium may not be all that bad when you break it down.
Example: < Prices and mileage are just base (imaginary) amounts. >
Regular gas - $3.00/gallon
Premium gas - $3.30/gallon
MPG (average) = 25
If you drive 12,000 miles per year, that's roughly 37 tanks of gas.
The difference between 37 tanks of premium and 37 tanks of regular is $146.52.
Break it down even further, that's $12.21 per month. Realistically, not a bad increase in the grand scheme of things.
I hope this helps alleviate some of your concerns about purchasing the Juke!
