Just to add nothing to the discussion: I find double quotes without
interpolation annoying, but only when I'm reading code without
syntax highlighting. Whenever I read code with syntax highlighting that
makes the interpolated variables stand out, it's no issue at all.
I tend to write "" first, and then change them to '' when getting close
to releasing the code. Unpaid non-opensource code usually stays at ""...
My excuse is growing up with BASIC.
