The Countdown to Maker Faire Bay Area is On!


GasPriceWatch – find cheaper pumps



I really don’t drive that much, so when I fill up every month or two, the experience is normally accompanied by equal parts shock and foul language. The strange thing is that the price of gas is always significantly more expensive in the city, and every once in a while, you can happen across a random station that is selling fuel for more than 10 cents a gallon less than everyone else.

It’s counter productive to drive all over looking for the cheapest pump, so instead you can use the GasPriceWatch Google Maps mashup to surf pump prices from home. Site visitors report in with updated pump prices, and hopefully there will be a good find along your normal commute route.

Google Maps Mania has a few links to some other maps-related gas tools that you may also be interested in. As for me, I’m sticking to pedaling.

    This is awesome! I wish I had thought of it.

    Anyone who wants to complain about it being a waste of water needs to check their own ecological footprint before posting. Those of you with 100% sustainable lifestyles, feel free to rip it.
