There's an entire thread devoted to that question over here:
- What are you actually saving/losing by using 87 vs 91 octane AKI (1)

The net cost savings that can easily be calculated is somewhere around a thousand dollars per hundred thousand miles - but it's way more complicated than that so see the thread for details.
