If you are going to drive it short distances on the order of a mile twice daily, my vote would be for cheaper oil with more frequent changes. Fuel and moisture contamination will be your biggest problem with that type of driving. As often as possible, take it out and drive it enough to burn those contaminants out of the pan.

never, one mile is short enough to walk.
+1 walk or ride a bike, and save the car for weekend getaways.
