U.S. and Canadian readers who are interested in researching local (or even not local) gas prices will find this site quite useful. GasBuddy brings together consumer-reported price information from almost 200 Web sites. Includes lots of charts and maps, including reports of historical data; lowest and highest prices by state, province, and city; and current averages. Price data, which are also available by mobile, text message, or e-mail, are removed after a few days to keep information on the site current. Weekly polls help you tap into the community of drivers ... find out how people choose their gas station, the effect of gas prices on travel plans, and what are the most popular solutions for lowering prices.
