Tradeoff on Fuel economy vs performance

It almost time to replace my "all season" Bridgestones on my 1996 Mazda Protege. The tires available in 185/65/14 are mostly "All-Season" or "Touring". There are a few "High Perf all Season" tires available. The 3 tires I am considering are the Bridgestone BT70, Bridgestone Turanza T and Potenza RE92. If I go with the RE92 will I pay a penalty on fuel economy? i heard High perf tires dont have a low rolling resistance. If it is a penalty, how big will it be? more than 1 MPG? All opinions welcome
