One of the pages I visit daily is my local gas prices  (www.detroitgasprices.com I think)

I got there via www.gasbuddy.com the first time

They have a new feature,, A US Map,. each county is marked out, and color coded as to gas price

Here in the midwest it's fairly consistant county to county but if you are out west you might want to take a peak at it when thinking about a fuel stop.  Sometimes a few miles can make a BIG difference (Like from top of price chart to bottom)

Well folks, I'm surely coming late to this party, so I hope I'm not going over old ground.

I'm going to try uploading a PDF on a Google Map hack. 

Whether or not it goes up, check out the following site for gas prices--a mapping of gasbuddy over Google maps:

Ciao,

Doug

Where is it $2.29? Haven't seen Costco's prices for a while.

Oops Bernie, my fault. I edited Shayne's link and probably screwed it up in the process  :mad:  I'll let Shayne tell us what he was originally pointing to.

That's a good URL Shayne. Sorry I screwed up your prior one.

BTW the URL doesn't hotlink at this time because I'm running some tests in the forum which prevent the link from being clicked. For now, folks have to copy and paste these links into their browser.

Gas is about $2.69 here in the Livingston, MT - Yellowstone North area and a bit higher at the park entrance in Gardiner. Diesel is about $3.08 but we saw $2.99 upin Lewistown, MT.  Hope that diesel falls as quickly as gas did, oce the downtrend started.

It's a state of mind Gary.

As I mentioned here and elsewhere, I'm doing some testing. Meanwhile, an alternative is to use the hyperlink icon above, as some folks have done.

Sorry Tom    I have no idea what that stands for.  UGLs and popcorn and my banged up hands match my brain.  Small and stubborn

Hi Shayne,

What I was saying was that, te,porarily, when you post a URL (web address), folks can no longer click on it to go the site/address your link points to.

As an alternative, instead of merely typing out the URL, when you compose a message there's a row of icons (small images) immediately above the row of smileys; If you click the one to the far left it allows you to enter a hyperlink (a web address).
