Savings accounts v. Roth IRAs

Savings accounts v. Roth IRAs

I only pretend to be monetarily savvy. :) However, I've come to a juncture where I have no idea which option is better, and I'd like help if anyone knows about this kind of stuff. I've been researching savings accounts recently, as I really should start saving again once I get the resources. While in class, I also learned about Roth IRAs, and I have to wonder... what is the advantage to Roth IRAs versus a savings account, and vice versa? Are there advantages at all? What are the disadvantages to both? How do Roth IRAs work, on their most fundamental levels? And if you have one, the other, or both... which do you recommend? Thank you. :)
