String flags - redundant?

Hi to everyone,
I'm rather a Python newbie, so I've put myself a question. Are these two
statements (performance-wise) equal?
r""" Text """
""" Text """
I mean using the raw flag speeds up things because the interpreter
doesn't need to look after escape sequences? Or it's rather optimized?
I'm asking you this because I want to know how my """-style comments
should be written in order not to affect the performance.
And another short question... Are there any flags to specify variables
intercalation in a string? I mean "I have x apples", how can i specify
for the interpreter to substitute x with it's value? (in case *x* is a
variable). And if this flag exists is it better to use "I have " + x + "
apples" or the above mentioned way?
Thank you for your time,
