Oil-Regular or Synthetic

I'm torn on whether to switch from using regular oil to synthetic. The one advantage I see is less trips in for an oil changes - 3750 miles (severe condition) to 7500 miles. Thoughts, please.

I use synthetic, when I have to swap the filter I drive it up on a ramp, drain the oil through a fumoto drain valve into a 5L jug, swap the filter, and pour the oil back in. It's a money saver in the end.
