I have 14s and 15 inch tires. And they are old school higher aspect ratio so that when we hit a pothole the tire is not destroyed. 17 and 18 inch tires are really expensive too.

Yes, 17s. Not sure why the tires are so much more expensive than the old 14s and 15s.

I don't get the reason for the big wheels. It is like the fashion has changed to bigger sizes. It it because the roads are not as good as they used to be? Mine are 14 an 15 inchers.

No but I would assume bigger tire would use more gas as more tire surface would contact the road.

The more resistance the more fuel would be used. If you had winter tires it could increase your breaking ability at least and more control when driving in snow and ice.
