Default Olive Oil

Cooks Illustrated has an interesting article on store brand olive oil. I think you can see the article but would need to be a subscriber to see the recommendations (it's a good magazine if you are interested). Anyway, thought I'd share:

But given the cost—an average of $18.99 per liter for the oils in our lineup—should you just grab the cheapest or try for something better from a gourmet shop or online seller?
