o2 is bad, if you want better mileage then replace it, car will be running a little rich or lean, computer will be heavily compensating while wasting a little gas

i knew my mileage wasnt the same. where is the best place to get a new sensor for a decent price. and are they all the same or different like more expensive before the cat versus after or what and how to i figure out which one it is exactly that is bad.
