Before heading out in search of the lowest price for gasoline, it might be a good idea to take a spin first on the information highway.
Several good Web sites assist consumers by providing current prices at the pump in specific areas. Here are a couple sources:
¢ AAA Daily Fuel Gauge Report (www.fuelgaugereport.com) provides a rundown of national and state-by-state average gasoline prices.
¢ Automotive.com (www.automotive.com/gas-prices/index.html) allows users to check gas prices in a specific area by selecting a state or ZIP code.
¢ GasBuddy.com (www.gasbuddy.com) has data on gas prices in U.S. states and Canadian provinces.
¢ GasPriceWatch.com (www.gaspricewatch.com) lets you enter a ZIP code or street names for gas prices in a specific area.
¢ U.S. Department of Energy (www.fueleconomy.gov/feg/ gasprices/states/index.shtml) offers a gateway to local gas price data through an interactive U.S. map.
