which transmission position should I use?

Hi. I have a 2005 Taurus. It has automatic transmission. I wonder if I should use the "normal D" or the "circled D" position for normal road conditions?

Thank you.

Circled D, which is Overdrive, which uses all 4 forward speeds, and best fuel economy. D only shifts to 3rd gear, is only for very hilly terrain.
