I-140 Petition Through Premium Processing

Should I file my I-140 petition through regular processing or premium processing?

Currently USCIS is accepting premium processing for certain I-140 categories. In addition to the regular filing fee, there is an additional $1,225.00 filing fee to upgrade to premium processing.
