A New Driving Partner

Gas, gas, everywhere and not a drop to drink.

Before heading out for gas, go to Gasbuddy.com and find out if driving to the next zipcode over might save you some dollars at the pump. The site generates a zoomable map showing gas price variation across the nation and all the way down to the local level. This also demonstrates how many of the price variations are due to state and local taxes, as opposed to the price of crude.
